In schools to help
kids stay in school.
A parent loses a job. A family loses a home. These are just some of the hardships that students like
Alina bring to school with them every day. For the 14.5 million children living in poverty, challenges
faced outside the classroom can stand in the way of learning inside the classroom. At Communities In
Schools, we work full-time inside K-12 schools, in partnership with district leaders, to connect the most
at-risk kids with resources-like food and clothing-and relationships that help them achieve in school
and in life. That's the power of community.
See how we can work together to empower all kids to succeed.
