Kids Thrive 585
The mission of Kids Thrive 585 is to empowers all those who advocate for children to connect with passionate and committed community-based organizations in the greater Rochester area. Using multimedia approaches, we highlight local resources for children and families, raising awareness and celebrating their good works, and in turn improving access to and use of their services. We promote collaborative outreach focusing on children and families in order to strengthen the local foundation upon which the health and well-being of the community may take root, grow, and thrive.
Kids Thrive 585 is a child-focused Rochester, NY area non-profit (501c3) organization that highlights good works occurring throughout the community and improves access to resources for children, caregivers and child advocates.
They have partnered with 2-1-1/LIFE LINE, a 24/7 crisis/suicide intervention program and Information & Referral (I&R) service that serves Monroe, Wayne, Ontario, Livingston, Cayuga and Seneca Counties. The 2-1-1/LIFE LINE organization has compiled a vast array of community information within their catchment area, including many resources for children and families in Rochester.
The Kickball League of Rochester players have helped raise $1,980 so far for Kids Thrive 585 for the Fall 2016 season.
