Flourish is a high-impact poverty reduction model aimed to support women and their families who are on their journey out of poverty. This initiative is designed to bring together committed individuals (Allies) and Flourish participants (Leaders) in a myriad of ways to work on goal setting, skill development, and relationship building to facilitate whole-person wellness necessary for families to transition out of poverty.
All participants gather weekly to share a meal and engage in a wide range of programming, which is provided by our Community Support Network.
We meet on Monday nights at Green Street UMC from 5:30 – 8:00 pm.
Contact Crystal Little, Flourish Director
to discuss how you can apply for the program or sign up to be an Ally or Community Support Network member.
Leaders are female head-of-households between the ages of 21-55 with an annual income of less than $25,000. These individuals are motivated to lead their family out of the cycles of poverty through improvement of financial stability, personal well-being, and career/educational goals.
Allies are middle- to upper-class individuals who commit to building community with and supporting Leaders on their journey out of poverty.
Community Support Network
Caring volunteers provide childcare, tutor school age children of Leaders, teach courses, and offer professional support.
