Urban Alliance

Thrive: Children & Youth

Thrive is an Urban Alliance initiative to help churches and organizations reach and serve young children and their caregivers throughout critical developmental stages so children develop strong foundations for learning and growth.

We partner with churches and organizations to strengthen their early childhood programs by equipping them to create a culture that is warm and nurturing, connect families to resources in the community, and implement programming that supports the development of healthy attachment relationships and fosters opportunities for learning and growth.

We provide churches and organizations in our network with convening, training, toolkits, consultation, grants, supplies and volunteers to build stronger parenting groups, pregnancy resource centers, children’s ministries, child and family workshops, preschools and other early childhood programs in the community.
