Communities in Schools of Spokane County: Serving Students and Schools

Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

In Spokane County, 1 in 6 children under the age of 18 live in poverty. Communities in Schools works directly inside schools, building relationships that empower disadvantaged students to succeed inside and outside the classroom.

We believe every child deserves these five critical basics:

  • A personal relationship with a caring adult
  • A safe place to learn and grow
  • A healthy start and a healthy future
  • A marketable skill to use upon graduation
  • A change to give back to their community

How we support Sunset students and families: 

Basic Needs 

    • Family Hygiene - available as needed
    • School Supplies - for Sunset students in need
    • Fresh & Dry Food - Available Monday's 2:30-3:30
    • A Bite 2 Go - Friday food bags
    • Prime-Time Mentoring

With your help, CIS has resources and the potential to help every at-risk child in our community.
