Who We Are
Communities in Schools (CIS) of Carrollton City and Carroll County is a nonprofit organization focused on improving student success. We work directly with school systems by placing a “Site Coordinator” inside the schools to assess at-risk student’s needs, and then work with them to provide guidance and connections to community resources to help meet those needs. The Site Coordinators are able to surround the students with the care and support needed through this process.
What You Are Contributing To
Your donation towards CIS will go to the Site Coordinators in order to ensure these students receive the community resources and guidance needed to stay in school and achieve their goals. This can be done by providing a mentor relationship for the students, tutoring and study aid services, and service learning opportunities. Also, CIS is able to link the students and families to services within the community such as mental health services, parent education, family counseling, food banks and other social services to meet the family’s needs.
