THRIVE is a technical assistance program that utilizes evidence-based practices, and core CCF procedures, to support the successful integration of people affected by criminal justice-involvement. 

THRIVE is designed to help various agencies who work with these citizens to strengthen their service delivery, and for companies interested in enhancing their knowledge regarding this viable, under-utilized labor force within our society.

CCF’s organizational practices are widely recognized as effective for serving formerly incarcerated individuals looking to pursue higher education. Our organizational practices, and support services consist of a combination of evidence-based practices and well-regarded theories. 

These components are what aided in our organization’s 17-year success, making CCF the go-to resource for information for academic institutions, community-based organizations, and city and state agencies. In order to increase growing demand, CCF now offers a formal technical assistance program, THRIVE. We have served:

    • LaGuardia Community College
    • Lehman College
    • Mott Community College Workforce Development Program
