Summary

Thrive provides assistance to families with urgent needs that can't be helped elsewhere. Thrive can help a working mom that needs a new car battery to get back and forth to work; a senior citizen that must choose between their prescription and heat bill; a recently laid-off father of two with rent to pay. Thrive helps keep families afloat during challenging times.

Challenge

In Iowa, 20% of families struggle to meet their basic needs each month. That means that these families are one bad day away from what can be a financial disaster. At IMPACT we see hard-working families every day that need a small boast to ensure that they stay on the road toward self-sufficiency. The issues we see like car repairs, water bills, short term rent assistance, often have no broad-based programs available for working families. Thrive helps fill that gap.

Solution

Thrive fills the gap of assistance by providing financial assistance for items and services not covered by other programs. The most requested items include gas cards, car repairs, short-term rent assistance, water bills and work requirements such as steel-toed boots or uniforms. Families are able to remain in the work-force and provide safe and secure housing due to Thrive.

Long-Term Impact

Thrive will assist 40 families with short-term urgent needs. This assistance will allow families to remain stable and maintain their well-being.
