Wherever They Are, Whatever It Takes We’re All In For Kids

Sept. 25, 2020

 

This fall, Communities In Schools® (CIS ™) is working in schools and beyond the classroom to ensure all students have the same opportunity to succeed, whether they are learning at school or at home.

 

CIS affiliates across the country are reengaging with students and their families connecting them with local resources to ensure that their basic physical, social, emotional, and educational needs are met. 

 

In the words of one of our affiliates: “Wherever they are, whatever it takes, CIS is here for our kids. CIS is here for our families. CIS is here for our community. We see you. We hear you. We will get through this, together.” Here are just a few examples of how we are doing this.
