In this season Thrive is continuing to help people in our community who need to find and keep a job. Our staff, volunteers, and employer partners are here to support you. Contact us at info@ThriveColorado.org. Please read the note from Andy Wineman, our Executive Director, about how we are continuing our work at this time.
Welcome to ThriveExperience the HOPE and TRANSFORMATIVE power of work.
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.
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.

I had no idea that God had in mind for me to become management, and even wondered why I was partnered with a manager as my coach. God then revealed why since four months after I was hired I was promoted to...
