We empower people with a holistic network of resources & relationships as they work to change their lives, families, and communities.

We create a thriving New Orleans through:

Intentional, Relational, and Inspirational

 People Don’t Care How Much You Know until They Know How Much You Care.

This philosophy is a central part of Chuck’s leadership and Thrive’s work. Chuck is deeply engrained in the community and culture of New Orleans and ensures that in all of our work, we continue to listen to what the most vulnerable in our city need.

He leads the congregation as a Pastor at New Birth Missionary Baptist Church.

As a Professor at Union Baptist College, he teaches a variety of courses related to religion, philosophy, and theology.

He advocates for the people of New Orleans in many roles: as the President of the Hoffman Triangle Neighborhood Association, Member of the City of New Orleans Infrastructure Advisory Board, the Forward Together New Orleans Business Advisory Committee, City of New Orleans Climate Action Plan Diversity Committee, and the Workforce & Culture Committee.

Everybody deserves the opportunity to Thrive.

However, our world’s broken systems, past hurts, personal setbacks, and systemic racism have left many in our city feeling stuck in a cycle of simply surviving.

If you, like us believe that all people were designed to thrive, we invite you to join us in our mission to help families, communities, and businesses across New Orleans to Thrive.

We play a key role at the intersection of humans and the environment: equipping local residents to shape a sustainable, thriving, future for our city.

Thrive’s green workforce and green business programs provide clear paths to success in the essential Stormwater Management industry. Our team wholly backs rising green professionals as they each overcome their unique barriers.
