On December 15, 8 leaders from 7 churches and ministry organizations (Building Healthy Families, Calvary Fellowship, Caring Family Pregnancy Services, Mustard Seed Outreach Center, New Dimension Christian Center, Poquonock Community Church, and St. Agnes Family Center) participated in Urban Alliance’s Thrive quarterly meeting, where opportunities to strengthen their early childhood programs in 2017 by offering classes, parenting groups and resource centers were discussed.

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