Communities In Schools

  • Communities In Schools of Houston (CIS) is a non-profit organization that provides supportive services to students at Tijerina Elementary. Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

    CIS believes that every child needs and deserves:

    1.      A one-on-one relationship with a caring adult
    2.      A safe place to learn and grow
    3.      A healthy start and a healthy future
    4.      A marketable skill to use upon graduation
    5.      A chance to give back to peers and the community

    We offer our students and their families services that meet real needs and provide real opportunities. Our services include:

    Supportive Guidance & Counseling
    Academic Enhancement
    Cultural Enrichment Activities 
    Parental & Family Involvement 
    Health & Human Services 
    Career Awareness
