The Thrive Network has been providing services for people with developmental disabilities for more than twenty years but came under the programming umbrella of The Foundling in 2018. Thrive provides a wide array of programs for children and adults with developmental disabilities throughout Queens and Brooklyn.
Striving for Independence
Carl’s disabilities aren't seen as obstacles to living an independent and fulfilling life. With hands-on training and coaching from his care management team at The Foundling, Carl sets out to conquer the day from the moment his alarm clock rings. From preparing healthy meals in his supported apartment to managing his bank account and enjoying time with friends, Carl is setting and exceeding his own goals. Last summer, Carl began working at a local nursing home. He’s taking on new responsibilities and is becoming more and more independent, taking advantage of all the opportunities available to him.
