About the Event

Charles Hanset started Thrive2Survive with the mission is to bring hot food, resources, and essentials to the houseless community but most importantly connection. Today, Thrive2Survive has become a part of the Recovery Café and is continuing to collaborate with community partners to bring more resources to the people with removing as many barriers as possible. We have connected with the Southwest Human Society to bring a free mobile pet clinic to our event which provides exams, vaccines and microchipping onsite! At the November event we will be serving a full thanksgiving dinner alongside a free mobile dentist providing emergency dental services, extractions, and restoration services, Barber2Go giving free haircuts, Safeway Pharmacy providing flu vaccines and numerous different community agencies. Medical Teams International will also be there with all 3 Covid vaccines available. DOL will be present answering any questions regarding identification or DL. They will have forms available and will also be working hand in hand with the local DOL offices to get attendees in office appointments the following week since the event is on a Sunday. As we know, a lack of identification is a barrier for many people to gain employment, housing or even government assistance. Our mission with Thrive2survive is to work with our community and government agencies to remove as many barriers as possible to encourage recovery, rehabilitation, reunification, and connection within our community.
