The mission of the Thrive Center is to provide resources, tools, and programs that are community based, family strengthening, and inspire positive development and enduring excellence to help our local communities thrive. Thrive will provide a safe, encouraging, forward-thinking environment to inspire others for lives of significance and service through education, training, mentoring, and healthy living.
The Thrive building sits in the heart of our community. Once the center is remodeled, it will include spaces for a community classroom, meeting rooms, study rooms, a game room, a laundry room, a kitchen for training purposes, a multipurpose room for events, and an eatery to help supplement income. The Community Betterment Foundation has partnered with several organizations, including Ozark Action, Hartville R-2 School district, MSU West Plains, and the Hartville Area Chamber of Commerce to not only enhance the programs we will be offering once the Thrive Center is opened, but also to help in the planning process.
