Many bathrooms have been closed during the pandemic. Who suffers?

Although this article was first published at the height of the pandemic, it is equally relevant today. Read more about how the lack of public bathroom access in our city has increasingly harmful effects on our vulnerable community members:

Since the onset of the pandemic a year ago, many restrooms have been closed to the public. Public restroom access is important, as many people depend on them. And yet, in the past 12 months of the pandemic, we have seen many businesses, institutions, and parks shut their restrooms to anyone but emp...

Today's #StoryofHope is from Tanya Thomas, Thrive DC's Case Manager and Women's Program Coordinator:

Last week, I received a call from a woman stating that she was homeless and asking how can we help her. After a short conversation about what we offer, she decided to schedule a shower and laundry.

After she came in at her scheduled time and was finished with showering, she couldn't stop mentioning how good the shower felt. She expressed what a blessing it was to come into a place that offers a warm shower, and she was close to tears when describing the experience as therapeutic.

She was a little hesitant to ask for food, but after assuring her that she can ask me anything, she confessed that she was hungry and hadn't eaten anything all day. After getting her food and water, she was so thankful. She plans to come back daily for a shower, food, and more of our services.

Often we take for granted the simple luxuries of a warm shower or a hot meal. At Thrive DC, we are proud to be a judgement-free environment for individuals who have fallen on hard times and need help meeting basic needs such as hygiene or food. I am so grateful for the opportunity to give our neighbors the ability to feel clean, eat a meal, and take the next step on their journey towards self-sufficiency.

At Thrive DC, we support clients in all stages on their journey to self-sufficiency and independence. We can help them do more with their time because we are a “one-stop shop” with everything they need in one location!

In 24 seconds, a client can receive a hot meal.
In 24 minutes, they can have a 1-on-1 meeting with a case manager.
In 24 days, a client can undergo job training and employment counseling.
In 24 weeks, they can live in safe, stable transitional housing for returning citizens.

This year, we are asking you to participate in Do More 24, where we are raising $10,000 to achieve our ambitious strategic plan! In the next three years, we plan to double down on emergency services, create housing for our clients, and change the way our city welcomes home returning citizens.

"[I give because] this organization helped me when I was out of work and that made me feel whole again, and I just want to pass it forward for the next person that maybe needs to feel whole again."

In honor of Do More 24, a fundraising event sponsored by United Way, we are raising $10,000 to help more clients find wholeness again.

Today's #StoryofHope is from Kimberly Jones, our Re-Entry Manager:

On Tuesday, April 26, Thrive DC hosted our second annual job fair! We were able to serve a total of 90 clients on their journey to self-sufficiency with the opportunity to network with employers from all around DC.

Everyone was excited to gather together for the first time since the pandemic started. The employers who came out were just as thrilled as our clients were to get back to work and a sense of normalcy.

I want to shout-out all of the staff members and volunteers who made this event possible -- it truly was a team effort! I also want to thank our clients for coming engaged, excited, and prepared. Thank you to the amazing culinary art program that provided breakfast and lunch.

And last but not least, I want to shout-out my students who graduated from the New Directions program who helped us set up the event. This was a day to remember!

Our brand new men's transitional house is finally complete and ready for 6 returning citizens to move in over the next month!

Men need a safe place to come home to after re-entering society. Without housing, returning citizens are likely to end up on the streets, and the cycle of recidivism ensues.

When you become a monthly donor, you have the opportunity to support 6 men coming home from incarceration and trying to put their best foot forward.

And when returning citizens thrive, so does the entire community.

Check out these photos of the fully furnished house and become a monthly donor today: https://www.thrivedc.org/monthlygiving/.

Today's #StoryofHope is from our Director of Programs, Jon Bolduc, on strengthening our community:

Last week, the dog of one of our neighbor's had bitten a client of ours, and the neighbor came to Thrive DC wanting to check in on the individual. Since our client had given Thrive DC's address as their place of residence, when the neighbor came to our office, he quickly realized that our client doesn't live here.

Upon this realization, I briefly explained our services, the population group we work with, and why our client may have left our address in place of a home address. I also offered to pass on the bandages and other items that he was dropping off the next time I saw the client.

The neighbor was very concerned for our client and hoped they received the proper medical attention, and I assured the neighbor that as folks come to Thrive DC, we are always on the lookout for greater emergencies and are able to assist with getting additional services -- especially medical assistance -- if needed.

I was very happy to have this interaction with one of our neighbors. Not only was it encouraging to see our community members looking out for one another, but I was also able to share a bit more about Thrive DC's work in the district. I am hopeful that as we continue to meet members of our community, we will gather more people to join us in our mission to prevent and end homelessness.

One reason we love our volunteers here at Thrive DC is because they are passionate about building relationships with our staff members and clients

We encourage everyone who supports Thrive DC to come, meet our clients, and form real relationships. We view our program as a place where the community can come together to lift one another up.

Read below for a reason why one of our volunteers chose to come to Thrive DC:

"[I volunteer because] I am a passionate person who wants to give back and play a positive role in people's lives who are less fortunate or struggling. I know a small gesture like a smile or chat can make a difference in a persons day. I believe in the power of compassion and want to positively impact the community."

Thanks for all the birthday wishes
Well acquainted with the work that Thrive DC does for the community. I will be supporting this group in the near future per donations. As a former resident of DC, and a Life Skills Instructor to homeless women for a ministry there a few years ago; I became familiar with other organizations there who are doing great things. Keep up the good work. I miss my second home.
thrive DC..was better before Gabriel came to work there , he is a such racist and don,t like Hispanics , even black people, he smile everyone because he makes sure get hes paycheck every months, I have my own disgusting experience with him....its time to speak up....
Just curious why you all did not stop working with Obama, since he was doing the same thing? Or is it just when a Republican is President that it's an issue?
I wonder if you stopped working with the White House under Obama because he was keeping foreign kids in the same way as President Trump. Maybe you just didn't know because the media didn't tell you what Obama was up to a lot of the times.
