Family Safety Plan
TOGETHER! supports the well-being of all families, regardless of national origin or immigration status. If you fear the risk of deportation, we recommend downloading and filling out this paperwork (prepared by our friends at Strengthening Sanctuary) to ensure that your children are cared for by a person of your choosing until you are able to be reunited. For help filling out the forms in Spanish, please contact CIELO Project.

Our Community Schools work is at the cutting edge of collective impact and integrated student supports work. We are always looking for new opportunities to support the work of schools to meet the needs of the whole child. Contact Meagan Darrow at MDarrow@ThurstonTogether.org for more information.

Marijuana Prevention Curriculum
TOGETHER! created a tool-kit for middle school teachers to educate youth about marijuana. In the new atmosphere of legalization it is important for adults to help children navigate the changing norms and laws.

We offer presentation on a variety of topics and for many venues – classrooms, after school programs, treatment groups, health fairs and many others. We have specifically designed presentations for children, youth, parents and professionals. Contact Johnna Knoerr at Jknoerr@ThurstonTogether.org for more information or to schedule a presentation.
