We need you now more than ever.

At CISofHR, we aim to create a world where every child walks into his or her classroom prepared to learn.

​We are moving toward that vision by pursuing our mission of surrounding our students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and succeed in life.

Children's Awareness Month

June is Children's Awareness Month

Children’s Awareness Month was first established with National Child Abuse Prevention Month. Children’s Awareness Month is dedicated to nurturing and cultivating the joys and treasures of childhood. The goal of this month is to encourage, support, and educate children while prioritizing and promoting their health and well-being.

2020-21 Impact

The Real Results

During the 2020-2021 school year 13,621 students were enrolled throughout 19 schools in Hampton Roads. 

Over 8,200 students were connected to resources with 987 students receiving intensive case management services.

During my time in Suffolk Public Schools, I have observed the connection students have with their families, as well as the tremendous influence they have on today's youth.

I love the impact they're having on the children and the fact that they're encouraging them to graduate on time.

It is because of a caring adult in our lives that we have been successful. For the students of Hampton Roads, that person is Communities In Schools of Hampton Roads.
