It's a GREAT Time of year for many, and at the same time, It's The Worst Time Of Year For MANY as well. At SBC, we recognize that it's been a horrific year for many, many people. And even though we do our best helping where we can, we are only One Entity and can ONLY do so much!
This is the time of year, when our hearts naturally desire to help others who are in great need. BUT, It's so hard, in today’s society, to know who and/or what organization is safe to share our hard-earned money with! After years of experience we truly feel Investing into a trustworthy Ministry, usually is one of the best investments, as they have the capacity to reach much more than just one individual or family. AND SBC desires to help MANY Individuals and MANY Families!
Every year SBC shares with all of you, the Ministry we have decided to Invest In, and hope that you too will join us in pouring into this Ministry so we can all "as an effective team”, help those who are genuinely in GREAT Need!
THRIVE - IS “The Ministry” SBC is hoping to Bless Way Beyond Their Expectations!
Thrive is a Non-Profit Ministry whose main focus is keeping Families Together. The Fact is, Most Families are torn apart, not due to abuse, drug use, or neglect, BUT of simply one sad issue - POVERTY!
THRIVE - works consistently in supplying families with all the basics we take for granted such as beds, furniture, household supplies, food, etc....These basics are expected by the State in order for the Parents to keep their children and for the family to be able to stay in their HOME TOGETHER!
Foster Care in Arizona is at the worst all-time high, over 20,000 children are displaced! Can you even wrap your heart or mind around this number? 20,000 children without a home to call their own home, 20,000 children scared out of their minds, without any hope or stability and daily living in fear! Fear of where they will live, if they will ever see their parents again, fear of having nothing to eat, so many fears, much too much to list here!
THRIVE is a valuable part of stopping this number from growing by working with families who simply need assistance due to falling genuinely on hard times, not because of drug use, but because they lost their job, have health issues, etc. Many of us can find ourselves judging very quickly, BUT there’s always more to what we think we know and think we see. So many families just need a helping hand!
This ministry has only launched in Phoenix, in August of this year and already they have successfully rescued:
75 children-Kept with their Parents, keeping 35 families together!!!!
Provided 40 brand new beds
8 Prevention- From Foster Care
20 Reunification-Reuniting Children with their Parents
3 Kinship families
Along with assisting over 25 families have an unforgettable Christmas.
THIS IS HUGE SUCCESS! Our hope is to be a Forceful Powerful Group to Keep This Ministry Forging Forward by successfully pushing those Numbers Higher and Higher even past Christmas!

We would like to thank Thrive for helping us during our reunification process.
During a personal family crisis, our special needs daughter was removed from our home by Child Protective services. Due to a financial hardship, we were having difficulty meeting all the requirements put in place by DCS to be able to reunite our family and bring our daughter back home. Towards the end of our Parenting Classes, our Parent Aide told us about Thrive, and how they help families in need to either help prevent DCS from removing children from their family and home or help families meet the DCS requirements so they can complete the reunification process.
With the help of both Thrive and God, we were able to not only meet, but exceeded the goals that were put in place by DCS. They gave us a much needed bed for our daughter, kitchen chairs for our table, and even some personal items that were just what we needed at the time. They delivered the furniture and even put the bed together for us.
Much to our surprise, Thrive also added us to a Christmas assistance program, that with the sponsor’s help, we will now have a Christmas that we could have previously only dreamed of.
We are so grateful to Thrive, their staff and the sponsors for helping us, giving us the boost we needed, and truly caring about us in this stressful and difficult situation. Thanks to Thrive, our daughter will be able to come home sooner than we had originally thought. We can't thank Thrive enough for their efforts and support that they have given to our family. We thought this would be a situation we'd face alone and with only the help of God. We feel very fortunate and blessed to have been introduced to the people of Thrive and would like to again give thanks.
From The Bottom Of Our Hearts,
Thank You and God Bless You,
Antoine, Donna, & Kristige
