THRIVE is a Community Asset Development Firm and Foundation that supports capacity building efforts of residents, grassroots non-profits, and the small business community.
Working through an equity lens, THRIVE utilizes history, creative industry, and resource development to support the regeneration of communities. THRIVE connects organized community power with networks of advantage. It also teaches established individuals, organizations, and institutions how to share advantage for mutually beneficial outcomes.
Together, the local community and THRIVE change narratives by creating a more informed public and focusing on strength and success.
The mission of THRIVE is to support communities in building wealth and power.
Talent is universal, opportunity is not.
We live in a system designed to discriminate based on race.
There are dedicated residents and grass roots organizations successfully challenging the systems and institutions that produce inequity but they lack resources and support.
Communities can and will act on their own behalf.
