Creating a City Where Everyone Can Thrive

Through relational programs that develop people, create inclusive opportunities, and build flourishing communities. 


Donate2020 Annual Report

Relational Work. Measurable Impact.

Our city thrives only when it’s people thrive. We believe that the most lasting change comes by marrying real outcomes with deeply relational work. 

Developing People

Our city’s greatest asset and best hope is it’s people. By focusing on programs that develop character, skills, and community, we plant seeds that not only bear in the short term, but yield results that reach for generations.

Creating Opportunity

Everyone deserves the opportunity to flourish. Yet many in lower income communities aren’t presented the chance. We leverage our programs, platforms, and network to create inclusive opportunities for all to thrive.

Building Community

Alone, we fall. Together we rise. By connecting networks and creating relationships between community members, our programs build resilient and supportive communities.

Impacting Individuals and Families

Transforming Communities

Building Community and Developing Neighbors since 2008

With over 12 years of experience serving the felt needs of the communities where we live and work, Thrive Pillar Programs continue to act as catalysts for meaningful community outcomes.

Kevin's Story

After a fire forced Kevin and his family out of their apartment in 2019, home was never the same. Living with extended family, while a blessing, made it hard to find peace and a space of his own.
Thrive Housing was able to match Kevin with a new apartment, and starting Dec 1st, Kevin moved into a space he can once again call his own to rest after his work at Launch NOLA and Restoration Thrift.

With the stability of an affordable place to call home and reliable work, Kevin went on to receive his bachelor’s degree and begin studying for his Master’s from Union Baptist Seminary.

Hear From Those We Serve



Thrive has helped us grow and develop as leaders, businesses owners, and community members. We would not be where we are today without them.

Darren and Earlisha

When I first got involved in Thrive's programs, my family and I were struggling to get by. Now, through their CDL training and community programs, I have a new job and a strong support system for my family.



Thrive has wrapped their arms around me. They opened the door for work and housing, and drew me into a community where now, I feel like family.

We Believe in Building Collaborative, Trusted Partnerships

“Thrive’s approach to partnership has allowed both of our organizations to serve the community and advance our work in dramatic ways; reaching more residents, more meaningfully, and providing greater resources and support than either of us could alone. “

Dana Eness, Executive Director, Urban Conservancy
