Looking for a place to start getting help?

We at Thrive wish to help you along your journey by providing as much information and guidance as we can. Below are some options for you. If you don't find what you are looking for, please contact us and we will do our best to help you.

We offer services in two ways: 

  1. Community Referral
    Your community professional can contact us directly and our staff will listen and help determine if our services are a good fit for your needs. If not, we will do our best to help you find services. 
  2. Ministry of Children and Family Development (MCFD) or Community Living BC (CLBC) Referral
    This referral requires that you connect with MCFD (child/youth and family services) or CLBC (services for adults with an intellectual disability).

If you are not eligible for our services, there are other services that may be able to help you. Visit our resources page for additional info.

Our Thrive team acknowledges that our agency stands and works on the unceded Lək̓ʷəŋən territory of the Songhees and Esquimalt Nations. We also acknowledge the five W̱SÁNEĆ communities: W̱JOȽEȽP (Tsartlip), BOḰEĆEN (Pauquachin), SȾÁUTW̱,(Tsawout) W̱SIKEM (Tseycum) and MÁLEXEȽ (Malahat), as well as the Sc'ianew (Beecher Bay), T’Sou-ke, and Pacheedaht Nations and the Spune’laxutth’ (Penelekut) tribe where our work extends. We are committed to acknowledging our relationship with these unceded lands and communities, at staff and Board meetings, and during our hosted events. We encourage the evolving learning and awareness of our staff, Board, and the Thrive community, discovering and striving for meaning and personal connection within each acknowledgement.
