Welcome!

Thriving Together is a women-owned small business founded in 2021 that partners with communities, states, tribes, territories, federal agencies, and national organizations to promote the mental health and wellbeing of infants, young children, and families. Building trusting, mutually respectful relationships is the foundation of our approach as we partner with clients to identify and solve complex problems.  We work on projects of varying sizes, from consulting with local program leaders to national initiatives.
