A note from our Executive Director:

“At Thrive our vision is to encourage and empower survivors to Thrive! We do this by partnering with local agencies to provide assistance in meeting the specific needs of their clients. Needs that the agencies themselves are unable to meet. This looks different for every client. For many it is helping to obtain furniture and household items for them and their children as they relocate. For some it is monthly budgeting, parenting classes and connecting them with other local agencies and resources. Finally, for others it is just being there for them and mentoring them as they continue on their journey from victim to victor. As a survivor of Domestic Violence myself, I know a lot of the hurdles these victims face, so I am able to better help them create an individualized plan that works for them. Our end goal is to help them break the cycle of abuse and empower them to do more than just survive; they can Thrive!
