Communities In Schools of Peninsula
Kids need to know that people care about them, that they are safe and secure, and that they are expected to succeed in school.
Promoting this foundation in our youth is what Communities In Schools of Peninsula (CISP) is all about. Guided by a local board, we rally community support for children and broker into local schools needed services. By collaborating with an array of public, private, and nonprofit resource providers, we make it easier for kids and families to get the help they need.
CISP serves an increasing number of students and families each year through a variety of programs. As a referral service and brokering agency, resources and support are brought to young people and families of Gig Harbor/Key Peninsula. We operate separately from though in concert with local schools providing programs and services that link the student population with assistance not always available through the school system alone.
Operational expenses are funded through grants and community businesses. All resources contributed by individual donors and business partnerships go directly to the students, families and schools of the Peninsula Community. These efforts are dynamic, expanding, and include numerous programs.
