Our Vision & Purpose



A community where everyone has the opportunity to thrive.



There is significant energy in central Ohio focused on ensuring a strong future for our community.  It is important that everyone, including those in poverty, have the opportunity to contribute to our shared success in the future.  Our community has implemented many initiatives and projects that mitigate the effects of poverty but to enhance our effectiveness we need all sectors of the community engaged in a coordinated way.


Community Alignment:

Thrive can contribute to achievement of Pillar 4 (Civic Infrastructure) in the Columbus 2020 plan in addition to helping to further issue specific efforts in areas including hunger, health, education, housing and employments as well as neighborhood focused work.
