Thrive Support & Advocacy logo

I want first to take this opportunity to thank the Thrive staff! These are unchartered waters for all, and we couldn’t manage without their unbelievable dedication and commitment. The Residential Team has been incredible in alleviating the anxiety of our clients, while also doing everything in their power to ensure client safety and health. Our Family Support, Individual Support, and Youth & Adult experiences staff have been working hard to create ways to keep our participants engaged. We also commend them for providing support and engagement where needed in the homes. Thank you all for putting our clients first, you are what makes Thrive so special.

Here is an update following our previous email sent on March 12 regarding Thrive Support & Advocacy’s efforts in response to the state of emergency and the coronavirus pandemic.
