Dinner Groups

Thrive Community Living Services has three longstanding social and dinner groups. Each group is facilitated by two staff with six to eight participants, for a 9-month session.

Group programs offer participants the opportunity to learn and practice life skills and extend their social network. Participants learn new activities while they prepare and enjoy a meal together.  While cooking skills are important and household tasks are essential – we know it’s the friendships that make our dinner groups what they are.

3:00pm to 5:30pm

Participants in this co-ed group usually live with a caregiver or parent and are developing skills leading to their independence. Cost is $7/session.

3:30pm to 6:00pm

This co-ed group is for adults who access the community independently. Once a month, this group chooses a community outing or activity to attend together. Cost is $4/session plus activity costs.

3:00pm to 5:30pm

Our women’s group provides an opportunity for women to develop strong peer relationships over a shared meal. Cost is $7/session. Location: 1095 Joan Crescent (near Craigdarroch Castle) Bus #2, #8, #11, # 14, #15, #22, #27, #28
