PUBLICATION | THRIVE: Medicine Hat and Region Strategy to End Poverty and Increase Wellbeing

Cities Reducing Poverty, Poverty Reduction, Strategy, Publications

Medicine Hat, the city credited as being the first to end homelessness, is taking on poverty in all its forms, with a goal of ensuring wellbeing for all citizens by 2030. The THRIVE Strategy to end poverty was a collaboration between the group leading the charge, The Poverty Reduction Leadership Group, and a substantial number of ‘Hatters’ from all walks of life. Rather than alleviating the symptoms of poverty, THRIVE calls for system changes that can prevent and ultimately end poverty by addressing its root causes.

Vibrant Communities supports cities and local leaders to develop and implement large-scale change initiatives through two learning networks, Cities Reducing Poverty and Cities Deepening Community. A Vibrant Community can be created once the human, social and economic cost of poverty are significantly reduced. Together, these cities/regions aspire to reduce poverty in 100 cities.
