The Thrive House for Youth
For 7 1/2 years (2006-2013), The Thrive House for Youth provided children and youth with a nurturing home-like environment to learn life skills, pursue their passions, discover their voices, form meaningful relationships and THRIVE.
On November 8th, 2013, Chapter One of The Thrive House formally closed.
The Thrive House 2.0 is now a work-in-progress.
Our hope is to find a fabulous space in The Presidio - close to a bus line.
The Thrive House for Youth is designed to inspire healthy, adventuresome, soulful living in San Francisco. All three combined? We call this "H.A.S. Magic" living!
HAS Magic living and philanthropic giving is the mission of the Rugged Elegance Foundation, the creators & funders of The Thrive House.
Jennifer Carolyn King and Timothy Charles Fredel, co-founders of The Thrive House for Youth and the RE Foundation, will collaborate with twelve positive youth development partners to open and run a new, safe, beautiful, home-away-from-home for their kids ~ at no or little cost to their partners.
Their goal will be to support the efforts of their partners to inspire their kids to lead HAS Magic lives, no matter what their circumstance in life.
The core values of the Thrive House for Youth are:
Health & Well-being
Adventure (in the classroom learning and out in-the-field)
From these core value come:
Nurturing Imagination and Creativity
Health and Wellness
