OUR COMMUNITY & SUNDAY SUPPERS
We believe that an essential part of re-entry is having a community of support on the outside. To foster that community, our retreat alumni, staff, and volunteers gather for community events and socials.
Our Sunday Suppers are a perfect occasion to foster our community. These dinners have grown to become an essential part of our organization and are a tangible display of our deep relationships with one another.
These Sunday Suppers are also an excellent opportunity to collaborate with other organizations whose missions align with Thrive For Life's.
Visit our Event Page for our next Sunday Supper!

Our Sunday Supper in March was dedicated the screening of "Unbecoming," a short-film written by formerly incarcerated men at Otisville Correctional Facility and produced by students from the High School of Art & Design.
