"Being a survivor is hard. One of the hardest journeys a person can be forced to embark on. Everyone that comes into the space seeking healing and community is incredibly powerful. Survivors are strong. Creating a space for survivors to come together, and to even be excited to come into the space speaks volumes to my soul."

- Tony, President & Thriving Co-facilitator


"The Thriving Initiative team consists of some of the most compassionate and hardworking people I know. It's such a privilege to be able to support our participants with their healing, and to do so with a group of kindhearted people who are focused on providing a safe, comfortable, and genuinely helpful environment for all is beyond heartwarming. Being part of the Thriving team has taught me how to be even more survivor-centered in my allyship, and it has shown me the impact that community has on resilience."
