“The company’s financial statements present fairly in all material respects for the financial position of the organization as at March 31, 2019.”

The financial statements and reports were succeeded by Thrive’s Executive Director, Chondrena Vieira-Martin.

“Our new strategic goals emphasize growth in services, revenue, our demonstration of equality and impact and importance of ensuring sound agency structure to support our work,” said Vieira-Martin. “We’re really excited to launch this new plan to see what’s ahead of us moving forward.”

Following the Executive Director’s comments, Carol Oosting, Director of Programs was invited to present service awards to all employees. This year’s longest service award went to a Counsellor at Thrice, Linda Berry. Linda completed 25 years with the agency.

“I thank you all and I really cherish this,” said Linda after taking a nostalgic deep dive with Carol highlighting her commitment to the agency’s clients with alacrity and infectious jovial bemusement.
