Our Mission

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

Serving Students and Schools

We believe ALL students, regardless of race, gender, zip code, or socioeconomic background should have what they need to realize their potential in school and beyond.

Help us support and empower students to confront and overcome personal challenges and structural barriers, and achieve success. At home, at school and in between, kids need you!

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.

Join Communities In Schools of Spokane County, KREM2 and our local
partners to fill backpacks for students in need of support.

The rising costs of food, gas and rent are taking a toll on many families in our area. Families have to make tough decisions when prioritizing where their paychecks are going.

We are here to help by ensuring students start off the school year prepared. Our goal is to raise $60,000 to build 2,000 backpacks for the students and families that need them the most.
