What We Do
Communities In Schools of Houston (CIS) has served at-risk students in the Greater Houston Area since 1979. CIS is a campus-based, nonprofit organization providing direct services and resources to under-served children with unmet needs. By surrounding them with a community of support, CIS empowers students to stay in school and achieve in life.
Working alongside the Aldine, Alief, Houston and Spring Branch school districts, CIS is able to touch the lives of over 30,000 students and their families annually. To maximize resources and prevent duplication, CIS partners with over 200 agencies – bringing community expertise directly to the school campus.
