The mission of CIS Atlanta is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. We serve more than 4,000 students in 65 schools by buildin g strong relationships with students, parents and educators. We are able to identify students' challenges and mobilize community support (individuals, businesses and civic groups) to overcome obstacles.
Our Site Coordinators work full time in schools and serve as a trusted adult and role model. We offer wraparound support for our students including: grief counseling, a food pantry, home visits, uniform assistance, healthcare resources and college application help.
For every dollar invested in CIS, $11.60 worth of economic benefits are created for a community. Your gift can help provide our students with the Five Basics every child needs and deserves:
- A 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
- A chance to give back to peers and community
The video below demonstrates the impact we've had on the students we support.
