“All any of us wanted, really, was to know that we counted. That someone else's life would not have been as rich without us here.”
― Jodi Picoult
This is a support group for single moms under the age of 40 that provides life-help resources through social bonding, relevant workshops, counseling, study groups and faith-based life principle teachings and other relevant outlets, opportunities and resources that meet young unmarried mothers unique needs.
You'd be surprised by how so many different young moms from different backgrounds share many of the same thoughts, feelings, insecurities, concerns and even strengths. Once you've found Thrive you are not alone.
When you're living through uncertain times, circumstances, choices, and changes, there is nothing more comforting than to know that you belong to something that matters and that is making a positive difference in not only your life but in your children's lives as well.
We come together every week and support one another through all circumstances. Together we find answers to life's tough questions; we celebrate achievements and milestones; have fun times and enjoy life, together. We are there for each other, no matter what.
We're family. We're Thrive, and that's what we do.
Thrive!Kidz Outreach consists of the children of the single moms of our Thrive!Moms Outreach. These boys and girls typically range in ages from newborn through 12 years old.
The children meet in designated classes according to their ages with structured curriculums that include lessons and teachings with morals and principles that apply to everyday life and often specifically relate to their unique circumstances in single-family homes. We also offer playtime, snacks, crafts, art, music, and social bonding as well as holiday parties, outings and family settings to encourage a sense of belonging and extended family.
Thrive!Girlz Club (TGzC)
TGz is for girls ages 11-13 yrs. This girl's only club is unique to Thrive as it is offered to not only girls of single mothers but also girls from married households. This group focuses on self-worth, self-esteem, image, value, and more, not as defined by today's media but through moral standards and principles that seem to be fading from society.
We hope to establish and install in these young ladies such a strong belief in their own personal self-worth and value that no matter what the images, videos, music and media messages of today tells them is desirable they will have such a healthy understanding of who they are that they will not compromise their convictions.
The club usually meets at least three Thursday a month from 6:45-8:30pm. You can check our Facebook Page Weekly to find out when they are meeting or email us at . The group also enjoys outings and special events. We'd love to have you become a part of this life changing group!
Become A Sower
"Sowers" are volunteers who work in our children's outreach teaching or assisting the teachers. We call them Sowers as a reminder that they are "sowing" seeds of new life (wisdom, knowledge, hope, faith, love, compassion, and much more) into these young lives for today, tomorrow and their futures.
They are helping to form and shape the foundation for healthy and strong teen years and their adult life through the seeds they are sowing today.
What investment could be more valuable?

It's About Relationship.
It's About Family.
While all of these groups share many things in common one key thing they all have in common is that they foster a family atmosphere and a sense of belonging.
Our goal during our weekly meet-up is to provide a well-rounded, safe, comfortable, healthy and positive place where moms and children can meet (separately) and build one another up through friendships, life lessons, shared experiences, creative/fun or educational activities, as well as workshops and teachings. We also offer periodic social outings, holiday parties and other events; some with the kids and some without.
You do not have to be a Christian or have any particular lifestyle or belief system to be a member of Thrive, you just have to be a mom, unmarried, teens through 30's, with the desire to be the best YOU that you can be and the desire to want better and more out of life.
If you're tired of the way it's always been and you're truly ready to try a different way of doing things, why not give Thrive a try?
We're saving you a seat.
“Anyway, I keep picturing all these little kids playing some game in this big field of rye and all. Thousands of little kids, and nobody's around - nobody big, I mean - except me. And I'm standing on the edge of some crazy cliff. What I have to do, I have to catch everybody if they start to go over the cliff - I mean if they're running and they don't look where they're going I have to come out from somewhere and catch them. That's all I do all day. I'd just be the catcher in the rye and all. I know it's crazy, but that's the only thing I'd really like to be.”
― J.D. Salinger, The Catcher in the Rye
