Powered by a United Way grant, THRIVE! Southern Lorain County is a collaborative that was launched in July 2016. Its mission is to build upon local culture to provide affordable opportunities for all to live healthier through healthy eating, active living and social/emotional support.
The ultimate goal of the collaborative is to reduce the risks of obesity, heart disease and diabetes in the areas served.
