More than 25 local service organizations, including Arapahoe/Douglas Works!, participated in the 2024 Strive to Thrive Resource and Service Fair on January 23, 2024. Strive to Thrive is a bi-annual event hosted by the Douglas County Community of Care Network. The event is a resource fair comprised of multiple agencies and organizations that provide on-site resources and services for vulnerable residents of Douglas County.
Over 160 people attended this year’s event. Attendees were provided a hot meal and were able to learn where to access food, clothing, medical, and housing assistance. They were also able to learn about employment opportunities, how to apply for the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP), and many other supportive services.
The summer event usually happens in July. Follow Douglas County on X (formerly Twitter) for updates. You can also connect with one of our Career Services Advisors today if you need assistance with job search, resources, a referral for community support services, and much more!
