TIG collaboration
"Children carry more between home & school than lunch and a backpack. Working together we can lighten their load." –National Association of School Psychologists

The TIG Community

“Coming together is a beginning; keeping together is progress; working together is success” – Henry Ford.  The growth of TIG over the past 10 years has been due to the support from parents/guardians, school staff and the community.  TIG and the school districts strive to integrate as many emergency response units, local hospitals, area and/or non-profit organizations and businesses into their TIG planning and response.  TIG is now a true community-wide collaboration. 

The effect of a disaster or traumatic event goes far beyond its immediate devastation. Just as it takes time to reconstruct damaged buildings, it takes time to grieve and rebuild our lives. Life may not return to normal for months, or even years, following a disaster or traumatic event. There may be changes in living conditions that cause changes in day-to-day activities, leading to strains in relationships, changes in expectations, and shifts in responsibilities. These disruptions in relationships, roles, and routines can make life unfamiliar or unpredictable.
