From Cradle to Career
SIOUX FALLS THRIVE
It’s been said that all a child needs to succeed is a little help, a little hope, and someone who believes in them. When it comes to our kids, Sioux Falls does more than help, hope, and believe. We’re dedicated to making sure all children succeed, from cradle to career. That’s the mission of Sioux Falls Thrive.
We focus on 4 critical needs for school-age children:
Neighbors and volunteers work to close service gaps that make student achievement difficult.
To be a catalyst to influence, advocate for, and support funding for housing development on behalf of the most vulnerable populations in the Sioux Falls area.
Reduce by 50% the number of children aged 5 to 18 left unsupervised during out-of-school time.
Create equitable and sustainable access to food in each neighborhood in a dignified and culturally appropriate manner.
