Thrive DC serves more than 2,000 clients annually through our Daily Bread/Daily Needs breakfast program. In just 2016, we provided:
- 137,000 Meals
- 4,600 Showers
- 1,900 Loads of Laundry
- 1,000+ Clients Receiving Mail
Each day, Monday through Friday, we see 150 – 200 clients for breakfast.
Monday, Wednesday, & Friday we provide a hot breakfast, and offer sandwiches on Tuesday & Thursday.
After the meal, Thrive DC has different programming for each day of the week. We provide activities like art therapy, music therapy, substance abuse counseling, and peer support groups. Clients are welcome to join in at any time!
Farmer’s Market for the Homeless and Low-Income
Special mention goes to our Fresh Food Fridays. Every Friday from 1:00 PM – 2:00 PM clients are invited to participate in our farmer’s market at no cost to them! Many of the low-income, Spanish speaking residents of the surrounding community come to participate in our farmer’s market. Come join us!
We are always in need of 6 – 10 volunteers to support our Morning Program. Volunteers will help to:
- Prepare and serve breakfast
- Greet clients to the program and pass out coffee
- Coordinate our shower, laundry, and mail schedules
- Pass out toiletries to clients in need
- Other tasks as needed!
