Advancing Circles of Support and Accountability: Community-based Outreach with Adults Transitioning from Incarceration

THRIVE empowers communities by creating spaces that welcome and support our neighbors transitioning from incarceration. In pursuit of this mission, THRIVE seeks to empower adults returning from incarceration, and to revolutionize the role community members play in their lives upon reentry. Our goals are to disrupt cycles of incarceration, isolation, and social harm among returning citizens and within impacted communities through Restorative Reentry, Community Building, and Constituent Leadership initiatives. THRIVE currently operates in Lawrence and Lowell, Massachusetts, and over the next two to three years THRIVE will hone initiatives to ensure sustainability as well as scalability. The goal is to strengthen curriculum and resources for local initiatives in a way that will enable any community in Massachusetts to start their own THRIVE Community with support of the larger organization.
