Our Families

Our families are made up of more than just a mom, dad, and siblings. Families are made of committed individuals and groups who have a vision, mission, and goal to make sure students in the community can be successful in school, at home, and in life. We invite you to become part of the CIS Wake family which includes students, parents, mentors, volunteers, educators, administrators, and partners.

I want my kids to be better than me. Communities in Schools will help them accomplish that.    
~Janeica Alston, CIS Wake Parent
It feels good knowing that my daughter is being steered in the right direction, and I’m not the only person who’s concerned about her future.   
~ Janeica Alston, CIS Wake Parent
I love the field trips CIS takes because it gives the students a chance to see things they otherwise wouldn’t see. The experiences they have let them know that they can be better than what they see around them. It lets them see that certain things are possible for them. 
~ Janeica Alston, CIS Wake Parent
There’s a certain level of personal satisfaction in using my talent and abilities to help students in our community.   
~Stephen Young, CIS Technical Advisor and Volunteer
I’m excited that Communities in Schools has fully embraced technology. Our goal from a technical aspect is to make a CIS Wake a model and showcase for other communities.   
~Stephen Young, CIS Technical Advisor and Volunteer
I like what Communities in Schools is doing, and I like the direction we’re going. Our students have a safe and secure environment where they can learn.  
~Melodie Braswell, Site Coordinator, Heritage Park Learning Center
It’s important that our students know who they are and understand their value in society. Communities in Schools helps reinforce that message.  
~Melodie Braswell, Site Coordinator, Heritage Park Learning Center
The Communities in Schools model works because we have the children and the parents connected and involved in every aspect of the program.   
~Melodie Braswell, Site Coordinator, Heritage Park Learning Center
Our own CIS Wake students graduate and then come back to volunteer. They’re willing to give back and help other students achieve success because they are successful.   
~Melodie Braswell, Site Coordinator, Heritage Park Learning Center
If I don’t help train and teach tomorrow’s leaders, then I’m partly at fault when tomorrow can’t lead.
~LaToya Jefferys, Senior Director, Outreach & Learning Centers
Being a part of Communities in Schools is kind of like mission work. The ability to usher these young people to the next level is phenomenal.
