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. :)

I cannot say enough good comments about this organization in particular the professional caring leader, Susan Milano. You are very lucky to have been able to secure her for your organization. Her passion for the cause is an inspiration to us all.

My involvement initially as a volunteer convinced me of the needs of our children and how everyone needed to be part of the solution

Best use of funds toward programs. Their administrative costs are the lowest of any educational nonprofit I know of. But, most importantly, CIS provided much needed services to children who otherwise would go without.

CIS is an amazing program that reaches out to students who struggle and who often drop out without intervention. It teaches the value of a strong work ethic and organizational/study skills as well as academia. It would be a severe detriment to Nassau County's youth if the program was not allowed to continue.

As a retired superintendent of schools, I was interested in the program in Nassau County. I attended several functions and visited schools to speak with students, teachers and administrators. This program is one of the best I have seen in my 40 years in public education. I was asked to serve on the Nassau CIS Board and enthusiastically said yes. The CIS Board, the school administration and the community provide excellent support for the children in Nassau whose needs range from a little help just to catch up to those students who not only need CIS help but also help from other agencies. This is and excellent program that I not only support with donations but also time.
