Communities In Schools

Heart of Texas

Communities In Schools of the Heart of Texas is a dropout prevention and student success organization focused on creating transformational relationships with students leading to success in and out of the classroom. Founded in 1989, CIS has spent over 30 years expanding into a multi-program entity, equipped to serve children and youth from kindergarten through age 24. Through these programs CIS provides school based case management, leadership development and workforce services to more than 4,000 students each year. In all programs, CIS utilizes evidence based intervention models that cater to the specific needs of students. CIS believes that every child needs and deserves a personal one-on-one relationship with a caring adult, a safe place to learn and grow, a healthy start and a healthy future, a marketable skill to use upon graduation and a chance to give back to peers and the community. A 2021 graduating senior said, “CIS has helped me get the academic motivation and effort I needed and shaped me into the student I am today.”
