I can’t thank you enough for all your help in getting [my son’s immigration documentation].  We tried for a year and a half unsuccessfully…It was a very stressful time for our family. As soon as we met with you things began to happen…We are forever grateful to you and Thrive for all you did and continue to do to assist people.

My wife and I had come to the U.S. from our missionary work to visit our family. For unexpected events we were forced to stay in the U.S. for a while. My wife is not a U.S. citizen so we had to take on the challenge of filling out all the visa paperwork. We had no clue how to even start. And then someone gave us Thrive’s contact info. They were an answer to our prayers! They went out on a limb to iron through every detail in our application. We would have never been able to do it without them and all those involved in Thrive. We are so grateful.

Our Fees

Our services are open to people who earn less than 225% of the Federal Poverty Guidelines or who have other extenuating financial circumstances. Our fees are listed on our fee schedule, which is subject to change.  Our fee waiver policy and application are also available.
