Welcome to Thrive’s Directory of Services!

Originally inspired by John McKnight’s Building Communities from the Inside Out: A Path Toward Finding and Mobilizing a Community’s Assets (1993), the Directory of Services is currently updated annually and available both online and in pdf format.


This Directory will provide a listing of organizations and services, primarily in the St. John’s Metro area. This Directory is not provincial in scope, although some organizations do have provincial mandates. Thrive recognizes that trying to find information or navigate services can be difficult, therefore we hope this directory provides ease of access to information to help make this process easier.  

The Directory is broken down into the following sections: 

  • Emergency Hotlines/Supports – A list of hotlines and supports people can access in St. John’s area as well as the province of Newfoundland and Labrador.
  • 2SLGBTQIA+Resources in the St. John’s- Metro Area for 2LGBTQIA+ folx, or individuals looking for resources in related areas.
