Communities in Schools of Atlanta Emergency Fund
In the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, our youth are reeling from school closures and uncertainty about what school will look like this fall. Students and their families are feeling the drastic toll that the pandemic is taking on health and economic stability for vulnerable populations.
They are wrestling with issues of systemic racial inequities that have been entrenched in our culture for far too long and have been thrust into the national spotlight by current events. With all of these disruptions to their education and their lives, that summer “slide” could
too easily become a “plummet” without swift and effective intervention.
Through all of these challenges, CIS of Atlanta has been here providing much-needed services to the Atlanta families who need us the most. Listen to this message from our President & CEO Frank Brown, Esq. who will tell you more about what we have been doing during this time.
