Thrive Happenings in Response to COVID-19 Restrictions
Due to increased concerns over the spread of COVID-19, the Thrive Support & Advocacy headquarters is closed, and the staff will be working remotely until further notice. The drop-in Family Support Center continues to offer phone and email support by calling 508-485-4227 x1004 (voicemail will be checked daily) or email at email@example.com/. Thrive’s Individual Support program is monitoring residents in their homes through phone and essential in-person supports. Thrive residences continue with 24-hour support for all residents but are open to ESSENTIAL STAFF ONLY.
As a new week begins, I want to update you on how we are staying connected and how you can stay connect to Thrive:
- The Thrive residential staff continues to keep our residents safe and engaged. For updates on what’s going on, follow our Facebook page @icanthrive.org/ or Twitter @icanthrive for daily postings.
- To keep you and your children connected, we are working hard to continue some of our social groups through video conferencing. Expect emails in the next few days from Thrive’s Director of Youth Services Caitlin Devaney-Fortwengler regarding those groups.
- We are simultaneously exploring the idea of providing live classes on some of our special activities such as boot camp and martial arts. Live classes will be recorded and posted to our website for those who can’t attend at the time of the class. Watch for more to come on that mid-week.
- Don’t forget to stay connected to us through our website www.icanthrive.org/ or social media. We are on Facebook @icanthrive.org/, Twitter @icanthrive, and LinkedIn Thrive Support & Advocacy. You’ll stay up-to-date with the latest happenings at Thrive, as well as links to other activities and valuable information.
If you have any suggestions, questions, or concerns, please reach out at firstname.lastname@example.org/. We will get back to you within 24 hours.
