I have known Communities in Schools since 2006. i have worked in nonprofits quite a bit over the years and understand the challenges of running a small organization that relies on increasingly limited funding and private donations. What Communities in Schools does well is harness its talent and maximize the use of existing resources to help meet the needs of the students and families it serves. Through Communities in Schools, I've seen how their staff responds when a seventh grader walks into school without wearing any shoes, or when the family receives an eviction notice. The staff of Communities in Schools have expertise when it comes to linking available community resources to schools who need that support in order to help students continue their educational development and ultimately, graduate.
