A little about THRIVING UNITED...
Since the 1990's Patrick Brown, aka Pat, has been around recovery. He has always sought out connections and dreamed of helping out the community. Since he has maintained recovery since 2005 he has connected with 1000's of people. However, when he met Jennifer Priddy, aka Jenn, things would never be the same!
In her own journey Jenn was able to start living the steps before she learned what the steps were while living at Serenity Star in the Austin Area. She was led by peers in recovery who were living recovery and had similar life experiences as she had. When she returned from Serenity Star, she wanted something like that in the Permian Basin!
Pat and Jenn collaborated and Jenn got to work! Jenn was able to research and assess the needs here in Midland. Through her efforts and Pat's generosity, she was able to start Thriving United and the 1st Peer Supportive Recovery Residence in Midland in October 2019!
They quickly started a board of directors, formed an LLC, and started helping others outside the home. But if someone was looking for services, where would the be able to go? Thriving United Recovery Center was born!
Since early 2020, they have grown from 2 in number to 7 by the end of 2020! The team, aka the THRIVAMILY, helps about 15-20 people daily and is growing! Please visit the "About Us" Page to see more about Thriving United!

His experience with brokenness, marriage, divorce, parenting, the ordained ministry and recovery have fostered a deep commitment to the spiritual solution of Christian compassion, working with others, and 12 Step recovery. Jonathan grew up in Florida and worked in business prior to entering the ministry.
