OUR committment

We are a local, Christ-centered, non-profit organization located in Godfrey that has been serving the River Bend community for over 20 years. 

At ThriVe Metro East, we believe that no pregnant mother

should ever feel hopeless, pressured or judged.

Our caring staff provides a safe, confidential, non-judging environment

where women facing unplanned pregnancy receive free and confidential services

empowering her to make a healthy and informed choice.

We work to transform her fears into confidence and will provide holistic support prior to, and emotional and spiritual support after a decision has been made 

 regardless of her choice.
