Priorities & Giving Opportunities
The equation is simple: more Site Coordinators reach more kids. We know there are thousands of students in North Texas who do not have access to a CIS Site Coordinator, and with the ongoing impact of COVID-19, more schools need our help than ever before. Communities In Schools is committed to hiring and training more passionate individuals to grow our impact and improve outcomes for public school students.
Mental Health First Aid
The relationship built and maintained between a Site Coordinator and their students is key to success — but students have to be referred to Communities In Schools before they join the program, and so it’s crucial we identify those students in need as early as possible. With Mental Health First Aid training, we train teachers, coaches and educators to identify the warning signs and causes of concern with their students. Those who have graduated from our evidence-based intervention training serve as a critical resource in our school community to identify students needing support.
Crisis Intervention Specialists
In addition to our Site Coordinators, we have a clinical team made up of licensed professionals that give specialized support to students needing more intensive support services. Our goal in the “Safer Students, Stronger Schools” Campaign is to have clinical support in every district we serve.
Invest in the future of Communities In Schools as our leadership team focuses on broad expansion across North Texas, putting more Site Coordinators on more campuses to reach more students. Investment in the endowment allows the leadership team to focus on what really matters — our students.
Our students need your support. Please join us in making our schools the “safe place” our students need and deserve. Donate to help us continue expanding our services across the region.
