The Need 

Those underemployed or unemployed feel a sense of hopelessness,
discouragement, and brokenness.

 

Over 10% of Boulder County residents live below the poverty line, higher than Colorado’s statewide average.  62% of single mothers and 43% of single fathers lack adequate income to meet their families’ basic needs; these numbers are even higher for single parents of color. Men with criminal histories can expect to earn less pay and lack employment opportunities than those without.  People with disabilities are twice as likely to live in poverty.  

Put another way, people living within the margins of poverty, struggling with barriers to find and keep a job lack hope, dignity, and the opportunity to become self-sufficient. 

Our Progress

 

Thrive helps participants build confidence and develop the skills they need to gain employment, establish a work history, stay in a job, increase their income, and advance to economic self-sufficiency.
