Thrive
Helping people on parole progress toward their goals

Made by Melody Quintana

The United States incarcerates more people than any country in the world, and more than half of those who leave prison end up going back. That's because the parole experience is fraught with obstacles, anxieties, and high-risk scenarios.

Thrive helps people set short-term, achievable goals to enhance their sense of purpose as they transition to stability. Using a mobile app or physical set of cards, parolees can follow a track of lightweight actions and take snapshots of the things they’re doing to get closer to their goals. A visual journal of small wins emerges over time, becoming a foundation for conversations with support networks of social workers, family, and friends.
