A good place to reach the way too many kids who live in poverty in this country is in school. The fine folks at Communities in Schools are helping kids in need to stay in school and succeed in life.

About Communities in Schools:

“Across the country, approximately 1 in 5 children under 18 live in poverty. These are disproportionately children of color who already struggle with issues of access and equity. Without community support, they are more at risk for missing school, dropping out and failing to earn a high school diploma. By helping our most vulnerable students stay in school and succeed in life, we are building stronger, healthier and more economically stable communities where every person is capable of reaching his or her greatest potential.”
