<<First Name>>,

     Today is THRIVE's third birthday! On this milestone date, we wanted to take a look back to see where THRIVE has been, how THRIVE got to where it is today, and just a little about what THRIVE wants to do in the future.
THRIVE Milestones
  • Creating: Three years ago, co-founders Kim Yeasir and George Halfkenny first met to discuss THRIVE Communities and commit to a shared vision for healing.
  • Beginning: THRIVE launched our first Circle of Support and Accountability in November 2016. Since then, seven more CoSA teams have launched.
  • Equipping: THRIVE held our first large volunteer training in January 2017. These trainings have worked to equip community members with the tools to help them play active roles in the lives of reentering residents.
  • Building: In 2018, Pass the Gravy and Soup's On launched in Lowell and Worcester, respectively. These community meal events are part of our efforts to build community resiliency from cycles of incarceration.
Thank You

The reason that THRIVE is here today, and what allows us to do everything we do, is our generous volunteers and donors. Without people willing to give their time and money to support THRIVE's mission, none of it would be possible. So thank you. Thank you to everyone who has volunteered their time attending trainings, being part of a Circle of Support and Accountability, or serving in any other capacity. Thank you to everyone who has donated, both our individual donors, as well as our grant makers. We're constantly inspired by our many volunteers' and donors' generosity and willingness to serve.

We'd like to invite you to be part of the future of THRIVE as we increase our impact, expand our staff, and seek to someday serve communities state-wide. Please consider giving a birthday donation to THRIVE below as we celebrate today everything that has been accomplished so far and look forward to the future we can build together.
