Thrive Group was established in 2013 to provide a more consolidated and cost-effective approach to the provision of infrastructure services for St. Peter’s Residence at Chedoke, AbleLiving Support Services, Capability Support Services Inc., and Idlewyld Manor. The governing Boards of each organization understood the need to radically change how back-office supports were structured in order to ensure that, with increasing demands and overstretched budgets, as much of the funding received through their Local Health Integration Network (LHIN), project-based funding and donor contributions as possible could be channeled to where it was most needed – quality front-line care for their clients and residents. By consolidating each organization’s Human Resources, Information Technology, Finance and Facilities Management functions and recruiting one Chief Executive Officer, overall administrative costs were reduced without sacrificing the strength that an informed and professional back-office infrastructure could offer. Currently, Thrive Group is responsible for the operation of four member organizations:
Thrive Group’s Board of Directors, Chief Executive Officer and Senior Team are ultimately responsible for all aspects of the member organizations’ operations.
In addition to operating member organizations, Thrive Group also delivers back office support to a variety of organizations. These include:
We serve over 600 clients with a staff of 285. Our wait list is over 800 people. Our roots stem from the Hamilton Cerebral Palsy Parent Council, but we have grown substantially over the past three decades to help individuals not only with cerebral palsy but with any disability, which may include muscular dystrophy, arthritis, multiple sclerosis, spinal cord injury, developmental delay, brain injury, spina bifida, visual impairment, etc. Opening in Binbrook in 1978 with a congregate setting home for 35 adults with physical disabilities, we expanded to include seven housing projects, some of which have short-term rental units. AbleLiving also provides outreach services in clients’ homes, including both attendant and homemaking services. Our new ReCharge programme offers in-home respite in the Mississauga / Halton regions, which provides relief from duties for regular caregivers.
