Research. Educate. Lead.
Why Our Work Matters
Through our work with many passionate and well-meaning organizations, we have seen that the norm is to implement piecemeal or stop gap measures fueled by a desire to alleviate human suffering. While we understand this desire, our communities deserve and will benefit from supports that truly build strength and capacity in sustainable ways.
THRIVE Resilience Model™ Training
The THRIVE Resilience Model™, developed by our founder and CEO Dr. Mollie Marti, PhD. is an evidence-informed model that helps you put hands and feet to the resilience building process. In our THRIVE training, we help you understand what resilience is and how to build it, giving you practical strategies to try along the way. Interested in participating in a THRIVE training?
