Family Fun Activities
We have some amazing events planned for our youth and their families. There is everything from a Pokémon Challenge to our annual Stomp Dance (being held outside this year). Check them all out and share them with your patients.
It's Pride Month
It's Pride Month and Elena has been writing some amazing blogs as part of our education efforts through our Upswing fund grant. Check them out HERE.
Don't forget, The Upswing Fund grant supports counseling for indigenous youth with an emphasis on those youth who are lesbian, gay, transgender, non-binary, bisexual, two spirit, or questioning.
Learn more about the LGBTQ+ community by reading Elena's blogs or visiting with someone you know who is part of the community.

Celebrate Indigenous Peoples Day at Guthrie Green. Our own CEO, Carmelita Skeeter will be the Grand Marshall for the parade. You too can join our youth and SUPAMAN by meeting at 11:30 to be part of the parade. More info about Native American Day and the Native American Youth Summit will be posted HERE.
NEW Substance Abuse Page
We have a new substance abuse page. Thank you Michael for all the resources on this page. Be certain to share the Journey to Sobriety with your patients in need.
Resources for Our Patients
Thanks to extra funding from our ANA (Administration for Native Americans) grant, we have limited funds available to assist patients with transportation, utility assistance, and even food or gas through gift cards from Wal-Mart. See a member of the Green Team if you have someone in need.
