Thousands of kids across the state carry adult-sized burdens to school every day: unmet basic needs, homelessness, bullying, systemic racism, the emotional effects of trauma, untreated medical conditions, language barriers, learning disabilities.
Local communities may have ample resources to address these challenges, but students and families may have a hard time accessing and navigating the maze of public and private services.

Communities In Schools of Lakewood is dedicated to empowering students to stay in school and on a path to a brighter future. Working directly inside 4 schools in Lakewood, we connect kids to caring adults and community resources designed to help them succeed.
