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.

We are very grateful for the support of our community friends and partners who find ways to raise funds and advocate on behalf of our programs and services...people like THRIVE volunteer Karyn Anderson, who organized a Trivia Night event in July with all proceeds to benefit THRIVE Child and Youth Trauma Services' prevention, education, and treatment programs for children and youth.

With her husband Murray, Karyn hosted a wonderful evening of fun competition and raised $1,500! Fourteen teams came out to play, with bragging rights and first prize going to Team Bar and Us.

Special thanks to Mill Street & 5 American House in Waterdown for their hospitality, and to everyone who came out in support of this event.
