Testimonials from THRIVE Clients

“I oversaw a partnership between the UNITE HERE Local 54 union and the Atlantic City Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. We received the THRIVE training which helped us develop and implement strategies for supporting the workforce success of adults with criminal records. When we started working with this population, the people in our HireAC! program with CJ histories were unemployed and lacked resumes. Now, 38 of them are working in the union. We’re delighted to put what we learned through THRIVE into use and really give people second chances.”

“CCF’s tools make it easy to implement new practices since they’re easy to replicate for our population. The tools help to provide more structure within our organization.”

New Hour for Women and Children

“The motivational interviewing section is a very useful tool, as is the Asset-Based Community Development Model. The implementation guide provides us with a handbook full of resources, as well as a litmus test to ensure our existing services meet the standards set forth within its pages.”

LaGuardia Community College

“The scripts [CCF staff provided for us] are helpful in the beginning of a conversation. We have been using them as a jumping-off point to try and better identify the educational barriers that exist for criminal justice-involved individuals.”
