Building For Generations Capital Campaign

Thrive’s existing space is severely limited and cannot meet the growing demand for services. Your gift will fund a major building renovation – so we can continue to be a vital resource and place of connection for more than 20,000 families.

The need for more space

Thrive currently must operate out of three separate locations in the Spence neighborhood.

A main inadequacy is the lack of private spaces for urgent care and 1-1 support, which is critical for people experiencing sexual abuse, domestic abuse, or addiction-related issues.

The current space is also not accessible and has no public washroom.

Building renovation details

The Thrive Capital Campaign will fund a renovation to add a 3,750-square-foot second floor and renovate the main floor of our building at 555 Spence Street.

The building expansion will create a fully accessible space and will:

  • Increase program offerings and program capacity, including offering evening programs
  • Add private, secure spaces for counselling and 1-1 support
  • Include a washroom for community use
  • Gather all adult programs under one roof
  • Have an improved drop-in space that will include a kitchenette, where community members can eat, visit, and locate resources.
  • Include a dedicated cultural room for community members to engage in cultural practices
  • Allow for a more coordinated safety plan in case of emergency or lockdown
  • Add a separate break room and bathroom for volunteers and staff, to provide times of respite

Your donation means so much

Your donation to Thrive’s capital campaign sends a powerful message that emphasizes the importance of individuals, families, and children residing in downtown Winnipeg and underscores our collective ability to build healthy and thriving communities.
