Thrive exists to encourage women toward Jesus Christ and transformation for a life lived outward.

Do not conform to the pattern of this world, but be transformed by the renewing of your mind. Then you will be able to test and approve what God’s will is—his good, pleasing and perfect will.  - Romans 12:2

Kings and Prophets Course #8
A Love That Will Not Let Me Go - A Study of Hosea

Hosea was the last prophet to the Northern Kingdom of Israel before they were taken captive to Assyria. He cried out to a nation caught up in harlotry, a nation which chose to abandon God and go after pagan idols. In Hosea you can learn how God deals with those who turn away from Him and about a love that will not let you go.

This study is a 4 week intensive study with required take home work every week.

Buffalo City Mission’s Cornerstone Manor provides emergency shelter for up to 16 single women and 5 families seeking protection from city streets or an abusive relationship. Up to 12 families and 46 single women can find hope and healing in the facility’s two-year resident recovery program. Cornerstone Manor Women and Children’s Shelter is a welcome relief from the uncertainties and fear homeless women and families face. For many, it’s the closest thing to home.



The “Grace House” Transitional Residence Program is a shelter which provides a unified delivery of vital community services to homeless parolees (individuals recently released from a New York State correctional facility) who statistically return to the community unprepared to reintegrate. These men are unable to find suitable housing and are all homeless upon their release from incarceration. The residents of “Grace House” are held accountable for their Parole reporting mandates, are mentored and introduced to life skills training, and are equipped with skills necessary to manage life affairs and become productive members of society.



Jericho Road Ministries facilitates wellness and self-sufficiency in the lives of refugee and low-income community members by addressing health, education, and economic barriers. The vision of Jericho Road Ministries is for Buffalo to become a city with abundant opportunity for the undeserved and marginalized to be healthy, educated, and whole.



CareNet is a national network of more than 850 life affirming pregnancy centers. Lockport CareNet Pregnancy Center was established in 1985, serving the community for over 25 years.  We are a non-profit volunteer organization supported totally by fundraisers and donations. We strive to show the love of Christ as we provide a compassionate and safe environment.  Clients receive hope for the future through hearing about positive options and being offered continued help.



For 30 years, SonRays Ministries, Inc. has been committed to helping young women, young men, and families that face unplanned pregnancies. SonRays Ministries began in 1983 as a prayer hotline under the Buffalo Regional Office of the 700 Club. As an arm of the local church, SonRays Ministries now exists to lovingly and prayerfully lead the hurting to a life-changing relationship with Jesus Christ.
