Community Impact
Together Harnessing Resources to Give Individuals Voice and Empowerment (THRIVE)

Hungry students cannot learn, and those who experience trauma are much more likely to end up in the corrections system. Sanger ISD and its partners, First Refuge Ministries and First Baptist Church of Sanger, set out to create a program that would help district students develop protective skills and resiliency, and increase access to healthy foods. The school district received $300,000 through a Texas Health Community Impact program called THRIVE, Together Harnessing Resources to give Individuals Voice and Empowerment.

THRIVE recently garnered international attention for its grocery store at Linda Tutt High School. Click the link below to help replicate this work.
