The Rotary Club of Warwick has awarded Thrive Behavioral Health with grant funding in the amount of $1,500.00. The Club's generosity will enable Thrive to make critical updates to its children’s waiting area at Post Road.

By selecting Thrive as a grant recipient, the Warwick Rotary Club has demonstrated its commitment to improving the quality of life of Warwick youths who suffer from the effects of mental illness. This grant will help us deliver recovery-oriented, trauma-informed, and family-focused programs so our clients can achieve healthier and happier lives.

On April 25, the Warwick Rotary Club gave $20,000 in grants to local nonprofits. The club raised the money through a variety of events such as the Gourmet Gala and May Breakfast. The club’s charity committee, chaired by Janis Constantine, selected recipients on the basis of their applications and how the money would be used.
