THRIVE News
THRIVE 2023: THRIVE has begun a three-year pledge campaign to celebrate our first three years of service and outline the vision for the next three years. With a goal of $150,000, THRIVE has already secured 45% of this goal through the generous support of people just like you! Achieving this goal will enable the continued growth of THRIVE Communities in Lowell and Lawrence, while honing our model for other communities to become THRIVE Communities.  Details to follow!
New CoSA Team: We are excited to welcome a new Core Member and CoSA team! One day at a time, they have set out on their journey together to build community, and THRIVE! We have several more teams in the works, so if you or someone you know might like to join us, please register for the December 14th training featured above!
THRIVE's Spotlight

Our staff is growing! We would like to introduce one of the newest members of THRIVE Communities, our new volunteer coordinator, Suzanne Bettencourt!
"I am so happy to be a member of the THRIVE Community. I'm a single mom with two beautiful children on the spectrum. I have been a stay at home mom for 12 years, and am returning to the workforce with a new mission. My past work history consists mainly of working in a corporate setting, treading in the unpredictable shark tank, as the days snuck on by. My working 
hours were often fast-paced and at times lacking true interpersonal relationships. Things came to a screeching halt upon finding out I was going to become a parent for the first time. I decided to put my career on hold and focus on my family.  Fast-forward 12 years, I became a mother for the second time, with both children being on the spectrum. Caring for an individual with special needs is a 24 hour, 7 day a week job. This experience has changed my perspective on life and the purpose I wish to carry out. That is when I found THRIVE Communities. I am now part of a community of empowerment, healing, and lasting relationships. I couldn't be more grateful to be given the opportunity to become a member of THRIVE Communities and contribute to their mission."
