Even when schools are closed, Communities In Schools is still hard at work. Because students who already struggle with academics, food insecurity, unstable living situations, or even emotional health need support now more than ever. 

So, our site coordinators and professional staff members are doing whatever it takes – delivering meals, helping kids access remote learning, and just checking in.

In Schools. In Communities. In Times of Crisis...

Maritza is part of a team of licensed professional counselors who are hosting telehealth counseling sessions with students in need of additional mental health support. Recently, one of her students opened up about the depression and grief she was feeling. Maritza helped the student identify triggers and developed a realistic daily routine to help her build structure into her day.
