Thank You, Crooks MUMC, for your ongoing support of our missional partnership with Thrive Peninsula.
Thrive Client Testimonial
Kimberly reached out to THRIVE when she fell behind on her rent and found that she couldn't catch up on her own. She worked part-time as a cleaner and received disability, but when health issues started to require more doctors visits and increased medication costs, she fell behind. A friend recommended
she turn to THRIVE for help.
THRIVE was able to help Kimberly reach a $0 balance on her rent so she could start over. One of Kimberly's main concerns was to find a more affordable place to live and she was pleased when THRIVE provided her with a list of housing resources that could help with her search. Along with the food, and financial coaching session, THRIVE also gave Kimberly a brand new makeup set, that had been purchased by a donor. Kimberly said "the cosmetic case was a true blessing. While struggling to make ends meet it helps to feel good about yourself and boost self confidence."
