Young people thrive when adults care about them and they have a sense of belonging to a caring community.

About Us
At Communities In Schools of Hampton Roads, we believe that every student, regardless of race, gender, ability, zip code, or socioeconomic background has what they need to realize their full potential in school and beyond. We walk by their side, in their communities, to challenge the systems and barriers that stand between them and their success in life.

Communities In Schools of Hampton Roads is part of the nation’s largest and most effective organization dedicated to keeping kids in school and helping them succeed in life – doing whatever it takes.

Whether a student needs a ride to school, mental health services or a much-needed meal, CISofHR connects them to the help they need to reach their full potential.

By harnessing the available resources in the Hampton Roads community, and then matching these services to each student’s needs, CISofHR is breaking the cycle of poverty and empowering students to create better lives, better communities and a better world.
