Project Thrive is a program serving families in Adair County Missouri and part of the federally funded Community Based Child Abuse Prevention (CBCAP) program. Through a community-based collaborative service delivery model, Project Thrive is a family-centered and prevention focused program designed to strengthen families with young children by providing coordinated wrap-around family-centered services and support that promotes the safety and well-being of children. The program delivers health, support and social services to families in order to improve overall outcomes, reduce costs, promote family empowerment, child and youth development, and ultimately reduce the risks or incidence of child abuse and neglect. A community network coordinator works with the larger provider network in building capacity, organizing and delivering services to families in an integrated, strength-based and comprehensive way. Each eligible family works with a lead agency and the overall provider network to develop and implement a family road map for achieving their stated goal(s).
