Celebrating a decade of United Way THRIVE

A decade ago, we put a stake in the ground around family financial stability and launched United Way THRIVE. In the 10 years since, United Way THRIVE has helped more than 211,000 families, has expanded and adapted to meet growing and changing needs, and has built a model family financial stability collaborative that is creating generational change and economic impact across our region.
