CIS of SWVA is a 501(c)(3), non-profit organization that began in 2013 with the mission of surrounding students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Our school-based site coordinators work directly in the school building, which sets us apart from other agencies. To date, CIS of SWVA has worked with over 7,500 students with many of those students receiving individual, case-management. School-based site coordinators connect students and families to basic and critical community resources, tailored to each student’s specific needs as well as provide whole-school supports. Examples of services provided include supportive guidance and counseling; advocacy; social-emotional learning; academic support, including tutoring and homework help; truancy interventions; opportunities to give back to the community; college application assistance; career/college fairs; parent education and engagement opportunities; and referrals to other agencies for mental health, physical health and other basic needs supports. As a result, teachers are able to focus on teaching and students are able to focus on learning.

All services offered to our deserving students, families and schools are FREE.
