     In addition to offering an update of all that is happening in THRIVE Communities, we invite you to take part in trivia night this week! Join us for a trivia fundraiser to benefit THRIVE Communities this Thursday, April 26 (7 - 9pm) at Blackstone Grill (15 Union Street, Boston, MA 02108). Have fun for a cause with your team of 1-6 players. The cost is $5/person to play for a cash prize and support THRIVE’s mission (click for more info). Hope to see you there and in the mean time, read on to learn what else is going on at THRIVE!


  • THRIVE's 9th CoSA team launched on April 17th! Circles of Support and Accountability are a central part of our mission to empower adults returning from incarceration, so we are always excited when when we can launch more.
  • Important conversations and connections are happening at Pass the Gravy (pictured below). During our weekly community dinners we are celebrating accomplishments and supporting one another through life’s complex challenges. Alone we may loose hope, but together we learn how truly similar we are and we learn to thrive together. Come hear what the buzz is all about Tuesdays at 6pm! (more info below)
  • We also wanted to spotlight the efforts of a couple members of the THRIVE Community here. Shout out to Jun and Rafael for your leadership at Pass the Gravy. Your efforts are deeply appreciated. Thanks for building up our community!
