Thrive’s Representative Payee Services provide financial management support for our clients who need assistance with their financial matters.

Our dedicated and professional staff works face-to-face with our clients to:

  • Establish a budget to pay for basic needs first including housing, food, utilities, and pharmacy bills.
  • After basic needs have been met, we work with clients to develop a plan for transportation, clothing, social activities, and saving for future needs.
  • Assist clients with other benefits programs, such as helping them apply for food stamps, Medicaid, housing, making referrals and helping with paperwork for various needs.
  • Help individuals meet basic needs and avoid homelessness, malnutrition, and other risks associated with disability.
  • Assist clients respectfully and with compassion.
  • Prevent exploitation by family members or acquaintances.
  • Encourage client participation in budgeting and managing bills for a greater sense of empowerment.
