Creative Approach

Come meet the team at Thrive and hear about how Atlanta is trying to provide 20 youth host homes this year. They received grant funding based on similarly successful programs in other cities. They are looking for 18 more stable households who have an extra room and an open heart to help. I’d like see our Belong network contribute 5 homes this year. If we want to help the hundreds of youth experiencing homelessness in our city, then this program can make a real impact. Please come whether you have a room or just want to learn a lot more and help us find good homes. Youth can stay for weeks or months, depending on the needs of home owner. Thrive creates a safe way to meet the youth beforehand to make sure its a good fit as well as meeting up with you both monthly to check in. They provide full support to address any issues that come up and they provide $400 monthly to help offset costs. This will be a small group discussion to ask questions. Here is the video interview from last week:
