"Counseling In Schools identifies, develops, and reinforces the strengths and resilience inherent in every child, and harnesses these traits to help students succeed. We work from a multiple perspective approach: each child is assessed from developmental, social, emotional and cultural viewpoints.
By working directly in the school, home or local community environment, we can more fully interface, advocate and support the child’s full life and full potential.
Our approach has resulted in behavioral and attitudinal changes that set students and families on a path to success.
CIS goes where the children are—in their schools, homeless shelters and community centers. This removes barriers of access to care, and allows CIS to identify and support the children who most need its services. Vital to our strategy is the quality of our counselors, all of whom have at least a master’s degree, and the support they receive from experienced supervisors."
