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

Rating: 5 stars  

Communities in Schools (CIS) is an organization that students, parents, and even teachers depend on. Most fundamentally, CIS ensures that a student's basic needs are met. This may be exemplified by the provision of food, clothes, or glasses. CIS also provides for many enrichment opportunities such as assistance with college/scholarship applications, after school groups, and educational field trips. CIS is also a catalyst for connecting parents with resources and opportunities in the community. This is a program families rely on and I can't imagine a school without it.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Every moment. A family that fills its cupboard with needed food, or gets the money needed to fix their car. A student whose self-esteem rises, another who gets the Christmas present they always wanted, gets a new pair of much needed shoes, or simply help with their homework.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Ensure there is a CIS Director at every campus.
