Communities In School- Houston Elsik High School coordinates a personalized response to meet the needs of at-risk children on the campus. CIS provides direct services through supportive guidance, counseling, academic support, parental involvement, and special college and career activities, designed to expand a child’s cultural awareness and vision for their future. Often times, access to community aid and resources is fragmented, impersonal, and hard to access. Families in need of assistance frequently struggle to identify agencies that can help, find transportation and time to access services. CIS resolves this problem by bringing services to the family through their children when they are most accessible—during the school day. CIS partners with over 400 community agencies, bringing them onto the school campus to match needs with resources. Please feel free to contact Ms. Satterwhite at 409-923-9619.
