Review for Communities In Schools of Greater Central Texas, Inc., Killeen, TX, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

Communities in Schools is a wonderful organization that fills a real void in our school. We have approximately 600 students and only two guidance counselors. Kelly Brooks from CIS is always available to help counsel kids, provide needed school supplies, and to listen to students when they just need someone to show they care. Kelly always seems to have the time and the patience needed to give children a chance to truly open up to her. She is closest to our kids who need her the most - the kids who can slip into the cracks or those who only see failure in their future. She knows all her students by name and truly cares about them and their future. We have a great working relationship. I was here one year without CIS and 8 years with it. The difference was night and day. We can now serve many more emotionally and physically needy students because we have CIS.

Role:  Professional with expertise in this field & I am one of two counselors in our middle school.
