Communities In Schools was recently featured in an article in The Columbus Dispatch!
This quote from the article so beautifully summarizes what we do in our work inside Central Ohio schools:
“Ultimately, the goal of site coordinators such as Price is to improve attendance, behavior and academic performance. But doing so requires building relationships with students and shattering barriers that often have little to do with school, she said. Some days, she helps prospective first-generation college students fill out financial-aid forms. Other days, she connects families with resources to help them overcome poverty, homelessness or medical problems. Or she provides support to students from broken families plagued by drug abuse or violence. And almost every day, she’s lending an ear with care and concern.”
