Urban Alliance

Thrive: Children & Youth

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

UA is working with churches and parachurch organizations to increase the quality and scope of 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.

UA provides consulting, grants, volunteers and training to expand and enhance programs that include parenting groups, pregnancy resource centers, children’s ministries, child and family workshops and preschools.
