“Families in Homes = Kids in School”
“TOGETHER! will participate in Give Local again this year. Give Local South Puget Sound is a two-week online giving campaign to support nonprofits across Thurston, Mason, and Lewis Counties. The campaign will run Wednesday, November 6, through Thursday November 21, 2019. Give Local is generously hosted by the Community Foundation of South Puget Sound.
“This year our Give Local campaign focuses on our Community Schools program. Community Schools is a successful model of bringing community resources into schools to advance the health, wellbeing and academic success of all students. We accomplish this by removing barriers for vulnerable students at risk of dropping out, leveraging research, relationships and resources to drive results, and keeping kids connected to their schools and on the path to graduation. TOGETHER!’s six Community Schools Managers and one support staff serve nine schools in Yelm and Tumwater school districts.”
“Your donation to our Give Local campaign supports our Community Schools team to offer the direct services and support youth and families need, like housing. By partnering with schools and local organizations to leverage already existing programs and community resources, we can expand each family’s capacity to meet their basic needs so their youth can stay in school. Please support Community Schools today!” by TOGETHER! Read more
