THRIVE is a community-based response to the challenges faced by adults transitioning from incarceration. We recruit and train volunteers from the community to form teams that support individuals during their first year of re-entry. In THRIVE's first three years, we have launched teams serving 15 individuals returning from incarceration, we have trained over 40 dedicated volunteers, and we have created a fellowship program to provide leadership opportunities for returning citizens.
We are excited to launch THRIVE 2022, a three-year pledge campaign to support our next stage of expansion. Our goal is to raise $150,000, which will allow us to reinforce the foundation for our current local efforts in Lowell and Lawrence and develop a clear mission-centered strategy to scale throughout Massachusetts.
We are seeking new friends and to expand our network of people who know about the great work happening at THRIVE.
Delicious food from Hop Sing in Town, a catering business founded by one of THRIVE's own members...don't miss the legendary kamakazi wings, served with rice and bok choy!
