Thrive’s existing space is severely limited and cannot meet the growing demand for services. Your gift will fund the construction of a new building – so we can continue to be a vital resource and place of connection for more than 20,000 families.

The need for more space

Thrive currently must operate out of three separate locations in the Spence neighbourhood.

A main inadequacy is the lack of private spaces for urgent care and 1-1 support, which is critical for people experiencing sexual abuse, domestic abuse, or addiction-related issues.

The current space is also not accessible and has no public washroom.

The Capital Campaign

The Building For Generations Capital Campaign will fund the construction of a new two-story building at 555 Spence St. in Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The building will create a fully accessible space and will:

  • Increase program offerings and program capacity, including offering evening programs.
  • Add private, secure spaces for counselling and 1-1 support.
  • Include a washroom for community use.
  • Multipurpose room for community events and activities.
  • Provide all youth & adult programs under one roof.
  • Classroom for Thrive’s parenting, mental health, and gender-based programs.
  • Have a large drop-in space that will include a kitchenette, where community members can eat, visit, and locate resources.
  • Include a dedicated cultural room for community members to engage in cultural practices.
  • Allow for a more coordinated safety plan in case of emergency or lockdown.
