About Us

Communities in Schools serves at-risk students in the Greater Houston area.  This organization has been around since 1979.  It is a campus-based, non-profit organization that provides direct services and resources to children with unmet needs.  CIS helps these students so that they can stay in school and succeed in life.  

We serve students who are at a greater risk of dropping out of school  Houston has the 4th largest dropout rate in our nation.  Students who dropout face various obstacles, including homelessness, teen pregnancy and other family crisis.  CIS is the only dropout prevention program that makes a meaningful impact on both increasing graduation rates and decreasing the dropout rate.
