Communities In Schools of Spokane County: 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 empower students to confront and overcome personal challenges and structural barriers. 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.

We’d like to thank these Foundations for their support of Communities In Schools of Spokane County programs!
