     Greetings! We hope you've had a great start to 2018. We're eager to share information about what THRIVE is doing in the new year, as well as important information about upcoming THRIVE trainings.

THRIVE Updates

  • We're excited to announce that our newest core member will be joining a Circle of Support and Accountability in Lawrence mid-February.
  • THRIVE will be launching Pass the Gravy, a weekly event building community resilience from cycles of incarceration, starting Tuesday, March 6. Join us as we gather around the table to share a meal, our triumphs, and our struggles while we support each other through it all.
  • THRIVE welcomes Lisa Fagerstrom to the staff as our Worcester Empowerment Officer, helping to launch THRIVE's new location in Worcester, MA. Lisa previously served fantastically in her role as facilitator of THRIVE's Diversity Training and CoSA Trainings.
"My work with the first CoSA in Worcester has further fueled my passion and commitment to THRIVE's mission by allowing me to directly experience it at work in people's lives. I look forward to continuing my work with THRIVE as we seek to increase community building and support to returning citizens in the greater Worcester area." - Lisa Fragerstrom (pictured left)
