This is a great Organization. I didn't know there was help for struggling students in middle/hs. My son has shown great improvements, my daughter will also be helped this year with the little bit of struggles that she has. This is a great program and they have great incentives for the students. Great staff!

So far CIS has been great! My son is thoroughly loving it. I see it already making a difference in his grades. This is the first year for him, he's a 6th grader at Hilliard Middle Senior High School. Dr. D and her team are AWESOME! If you have a struggling child(ren) I highly recommend this program. :)

My child has benefitted so much by being able to go to the Home Work Club. She has now become and Honor Roll student and now has goals to attend college. Communities In Schools help so many students in Nassau County that have no other place to go for counseling, mentoring, food and clothes and Love. I feel if a person can give back to this organization with time or money they will be richly rewarded by seeing smiles on students faces that might not otherwise be there. Thank you CIS for all that you do. Anne Barbanel

CIS is a must in our community. There are children & teens who need help with school, maybe a little extra attention, and maybe a listening ear to go along with that. CIS staff members do their best to be whatever it is that each individual child needs to be successful in school and in life. They are a wonderful nonprofit agency & I am thankful they exist in our community!

Communities In Schools is a super agency that works within the school system as an added support to the school, the students and their families. I have known several youth and their families who received not only academic support but food and clothing due to a loss of their home to a fire. This agency reaches out to any student to help support them in any way needed. Thank you Communities In Schools of Nassau County!!

This organization is wonderful and very well run. It offers a lot of very great opportunities to students who do not get as much attention as they should. These students are the up and coming generation. They are the future and they can succeed as long as they have the resources to learn and grow. that extra care that the volunteers and staff provide really helps these students to excel beyond their wildest dreams. Keep up the great work because you are doing a wonderful job!!

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

seeing the students grow and succeed.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

enthusiastic about what they do and actually liked coming to volunteer.
