The program, which was inspired by the successful Aspire pilot launched and funded by Women United, will focus on providing support to the 50,000 families in Virginia Beach who qualify as ALICE and are struggling to make ends meet. VBthrive will work with a variety of partners to support these individuals and families in four critical areas:
- Workforce Development
- Wraparound Services
VBthrive was launched thanks to the support of a three-year, $15 million grant from the City of Virginia Beach with funding from the American Rescue Plan Act. The program will also provide $10 million in business relief grants through LISC Hampton Roads.
