Review for Communities In Schools of Greater Central Texas, Inc., Killeen, TX, USA
There are many ways in which Communities in Schools will help children and their families during a typical school year. It could be a simple thing, like helping out with school supplies, a pair of shoes, or providing the few dollars for the upcoming field trip. Some families need assistance in finding resources to pay the rent or their utilities. At times, the Communities in Schools staff person may help out by providing help with job applications, Medicaid Forms, search for housing, search for Pediatricians who will accept new medicaid patients, help getting eye exams and glasses for those families without health insurance, ....to put things in a nutshell, Communities in Schools often provide the link between the school and the community.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
...the positive changes in student's outlook and attitudes.
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
...provide at least a part time person on every campus.
