Enriches the lives of those with intellectual disabilities by meeting their social and recreational needs.
A Special Place where those with Special Needs THRIVE.
It’s not easy being special. You stand out…or you don’t. You’re left out…or you’re kept in. Yet, you have social needs just like everyone else. That’s why Thrive Memphis was founded. Formerly known as The Exceptional Foundation of West Tennessee, Thrive Memphis is a non-profit organization providing social and recreational experiences for individuals with intellectual disabilities. We offer holistic programming in a safe, welcoming community for individuals with a variety of disabilities.
Who We Serve
Thrive Memphis is a welcoming community for individuals with a variety of disabilities including those with Autism Spectrum Disorder, Down Syndrome, Developmental Delay, Williams Syndrome, Prader-Willi, Rubenstein Taybi, and others who meet the organization’s participation criteria.
