ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Strive 2 Thrive, a program that helps families escape poverty, held a special breakfast Tuesday to recognize some of those people.

Members of the Albany Chamber of Commerce, Albany State University, SB&T and several other city leaders joined together to talk about the hardships and goals of those who have entered the program and left with success.

"Today you will witness the same for yourself. I will not go through a long list of accomplishments, this year you will see some of the success stories for yourself," said Strive 2 Thrive director Ausha Jackson.

Participates of Strive 2 Thrive have moved forward to graduate from Albany State University, become members of management within the community and one participate even became an author.

It's a message to help show how much of an impact the community and its leaders can make on an individual.
