About The Future for THRIVE Campaign

Over the past 5 years we've seen record growth and yet the demand rises. 2023 Marks our 50th year serving our Peninsula Community and we couldn't find a more suitable way to celebrate than furthering our outreach and expanding our services.


Our new building is full of innovation, offering services in a way that is dignified and accessible. We didn't wait to run a feasibility study and a full capital campaign. Instead, we saw the need and we took action. Now, we hope as you read and see what we've accomplished that you will join our campaign to fully fund the purchase and renovation of our space so that all future resources can be dedicated to providing help to our community.

What's Inside:


The Market at THRIVE - The Peninsula's first free-food grocery store. This dignifying experience allows families to feel comfortable selecting the food they take home in a stigma-free environment. With a focus on fresh and healthy foods, we want everyone in our community to have enough food to eat.


A dedicated Financial Wing - A professional space allowing clients and coaches a dedicated space to learn to take transformative steps towards a more stable future.


A Raised Bed Garden - A nourishing place for our community to learn and GROW.


A Community Engagement space for outreach, education, work groups, meetings, and socials.


And a Free Bookstore in partnership w/REACH, inc. Families can "shop" for new children's books with every visit, fostering a love of reading and learning.


Our goal is to raise $1.5 Million dollars to fully fund the purchase and renovation. This will ensure that our resources stay completely committed to the mission of serving our community. As of March 1, 2024, we have raised $1.2M.
