We have much to celebrate as THRIVE Communities grows and develops.
  • Frederick Clay is THRIVE's 2019 Leadership Fellow (pictured below). He is listening to neighbors impacted by incarceration and responding to challenges they express with community-based events .
  • Keishmary Rodriguez joined the THRIVE Community part-time in May as the Lowell area Reentry Coach. Keishmary is recruiting new members and will be supporting CoSA teams throughout the first year of reentry.
  • Strategic planning will begin this Fall with the support of the Blue Cross Blue Shield of Massachusetts Foundation and consultants Strategy Matters. You will have an opportunity to take part in this effort, offering input and perspective as a member of THRIVE Communities. We truly hope you will share your experience, thoughts, and hopes for THRIVE Communities during this process. More information to follow! 
Earlier this year, THRIVE Fellow, Frederick Clay (top left), organized an event on housing with partners Lowell Transitional Living Center, CTI, Merrimack Valley Housing Partnership, Lowell House, and New Life Sober Living. This event gave way to deepening each of these relationships and improving services for returning citizens within the THRIVE Community. Thank you Fred!
