Future Plans

On Saturday, October 28th, THRIVE’s Board of Directors cast a vision for the organization, informed by the input and feedback of many members of the THRIVE Community. This planning process was skillfully facilitated by Strategy Matters and sponsored by Blue Cross Blue Shield Foundation of Massachusetts. We look forward to sharing the outcomes with you as they are finalized.
