Some students face emotional, behavioral and mental health challenges, either directly themselves or in their immediate family. Our site coordinators are trained to help identify and reach out to kids and families who may need support services. We work with our partner schools, as well as community organizations, to provide the best resources and referrals available to our students and families. Our commitment is to treat every child with dignity and respect, and ensure they receive the services and support they need to be their best.

The spread of COVID-19 in the United States has presented an unprecedented challenge to all communities, and particularly students and families in rural regions have uniquely been impacted in three ways - economic vulnerability, access to healthcare, and persistent levels of poverty. Communities In Schools is working to help those we serve combat these issues.
