Our Vision

Thrive is a community empowerment program which provides basic living essentials to families and individuals through a case management process that ensures their stability while working through goal plans for self-sufficiency.  These services include access to food, household cleaning supplies, and personal hygiene items; clothing support for foster and adopted children; and new baby care supplies.  Thrive delivers services through a dignified shopping experience where participants are given choices of selection to meet their specific needs.

Our Mission

To collaborate with service agencies in the greater Parkersburg area in providing a full complement of case managed assistance to help families achieve and maintain self-sufficiency.

  • Thrive Market , a choice based food market
  • Thrive Homegoods providing infant, toddler and housing supplies
  • Hope Grows, a community garden project providing fresh greens and organic vegetables
  • Kelly’s Closet, clothing distribution for foster children

Hours and Info

Open Monday – Friday 1pm – 3pm

Because Thrive is meant to function as an emergency necessity resource, customers are able to visit twice before needing to make an appointment with a case manager through Community Resources. Working with a case manager allows CRI and Thrive to better understand the needs of our clients and how we can help them reach self-sufficiency.
