You can be a part of what God is doing for women and children at Thrive. We need each of you.
We rely on individuals, churches, organizations, and businesses who generously give their time and resources to make
what we do possible.
For women who lack the necessary support system and life skills, motherhood can be very frightening, even overwhelming. Oftentimes a pregnant woman without a support system feels like abortion is her only viable option.
Thrive exists to give women a safe oasis to learn to have hope again as a caring team surrounds them with the love of Jesus. They can plan for the good future God has for them and their family. Not only are each woman’s physical needs met, but she is given the opportunity to further her education, receive job training, and learn how to care for herself, her children, and her home.

Welcome Home Project
We’re often asked “How can we help?” or “What is something that my Sunday School could give to?” In response, we decided to launch the “Welcome Home” project, and it has been an incredible success.
“Welcome Home” provides the essential items for a young woman that is about to join our Thrive Family. She will receive an incredible gift when she walks through the door of her new home-suite. She will be the first to sleep on the new sheets on her bed, be warmed by the new comforter, rest her head on new pillows, step out of the shower onto a new mat, with new towels and other new bathroom products.
For her, it could be the first time she ever had something “brand-new.” That sense of HOPE and love is what we desire because she is worth it. $200 is all it takes to purchase these items.
There are three ways to participate:
Facebook & Amazon Smile
Are you an Amazon shopper? If so, use “smile.amazon.com” and search for Thrive as your charity. You will be able to use the same login information to shop with…in fact, everything is the same! Amazon will give a portion of the proceeds from your order to Thrive!
Additionally, you can purchase items from our Amazon Smile Charity Wish List, by clicking here.
You can now donate to www.ThriveSWFL.org simply by posting on Facebook! YES! You can even create a fundraising campaign and invite your friends to contribute.
Facebook receives no percentage of the donations and deposits the total amount donated at the end of the campaign or by the 15th of the month directly into our accounts. Donations made through Facebook are secure and safe.
For assistance setting up your Amazon Smile or Facebook Fundraiser, contact us today.
Tree of Life
The Tree of Life is a permanent display in the entryway at Thrive. It’s a way for you to say thank you to a special woman in your life, and honor her life of caring. For a special gift of $1,000, her name will be inscribed on a golden leaf that will welcome young women and their babies to a future of hope. In addition to a Golden Leaf, your recipient or their family will receive a certificate suitable for framing.
Walkway of Life
The Walkway of Life is the welcoming feature at the entrance to Thrive. You can say thank you to a special man in your life by dedicating an engraved brick to him. For a special gift of $1,000, his name will be inscribed on a brick that will welcome young women, young men, and their babies to a future of hope. In addition to the Engraved Brick, the recipient or his family will receive a certificate suitable for framing.
Southwest Florida is a very caring place to live. Many people volunteer regularly and give financially to the nonprofit groups of their choice. When they’re gone, their support is sorely missed. By leaving a legacy through a gift in your will, or if you choose to do your giving while you’re living, you can continue to help organizations that are making an important difference in Southwest Florida. When you Leave a Legacy, you make sure that help continues to be there for those who need it.
If you would like information on the Tree or Walkway of Life or to add Thrive to your legacy, please call (239) 242-7238.
Below are the items we need regularly. We print specific wish lists for our newsletters and occasionally will post on our Facebook Page an urgent need. Most of the items are also listed on the Amazon Charity Wish List for convenient ‘click-n-ship’ from the comfort and safety of home. If you do wish to utilize the Charity Wish List, please select the “Gift” option and include your name so we may thank you!
