We believe thriving children create thriving communities. To that end, we focus on a community-wide response to childhood trauma that combines excellence in treatment, state-of-the-art education, and community oriented prevention initiatives aimed at reducing the incidence and impact of child maltreatment and promoting the safe and healthy development of children.

Just in time for a 1pm tee time, the rain stopped and the sun came out at Heron Point Golf Links for another wonderful Lanhack Charity Golf Classic on August 20th. Hosted annually by Lanhack Consultants, a local engineering firm, the tournament raises funds for THRIVE Child and Youth Trauma Services and Help A Child Smile. Dave Hacking (pictured, with THRIVE Executive Director Karen Smith) and Carlos Lancia believe in these causes and invite their business associates to join them each year to support the work of these organizations. This year, more than $4,700 was raised through competition holes and auction purchases.Thank you to everyone at Lanhack, to all the golfers who participated, and to the donors and volunteers who made the day possible.

On behalf of the youngsters we serve, we are very grateful.


Strengthening children, youth, and families since 1976.
