What We Do
CIS offers programs during the day and afterschool that partner with school district, educators, parents and community partners to identify barriers to success and address the students’ needs. Once the needs are identified, CIS customizes support for students and families providing individual case management services while engaging the community as part of this process. CIS reviews individual academics, behavior, attendance and tracks education outcomes for all students served.
We Believe That Every Child Needs and Deserves:
- A personal one-on-one relationship with a caring adult
- A safe place to learn and grow
- A marketable skill to use upon graduation
- A chance to give back to peers and the community
