THRIVE is always interested in new, relevant services and activities, and has an ongoing need for wellness instructors, workshops leaders, recovery coaches, event organizers, artists (visual, musical and otherwise) and creatives of all sorts. We’re also seeking volunteers to welcome visitors, answer phones, and help with light filing. Interested in helping out? Give us a shout!
Suggestions for how we can make the activities and services more appealing and useful to members of the recovery community are always welcome.
