Message From Mike Spring 2018

What a difference a year makes! Last year at this time we were known as Greater Marlborough Programs, serving 15 Metrowest communities. Today, as Thrive Support & Advocacy, we proudly provide critically-needed services to 42 Massachusetts cities and towns.

Together with our kind and generous supporters, volunteers and donors, we are bringing Thrive’s leading edge services to more children, adults, and families than ever before. Among our notable initiatives are:

These three areas of service share one characteristic – they exist because you are generous enough to support them. Thrive currently receives no public funding for these activities, which are essential to empower children, adults, and families to lead rich, active and self-directed lives.

If you are not currently active in our Thrive community, I invite you to join us. You’ll experience a sense of fulfillment that is not available at any price. Please contact me to explore how, together, we can invest your time, talent or treasure to ensure that children, adults, and families find opportunities to shine every day.


Michael A. Rodrigues, President & CEO
