WE ARE ALL IN FOR KIDS

By Steve Majors | April 14, 2020 Site Coordinator

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...
