Children First




We are Children First/Communities In Schools of Buncombe County and we believe that all children deserve to reach their full potential. We help achieve this by surrounding children and their families with supports that help them succeed in their schools, communities and homes. With staff placed in schools and communities with high rates of poverty, we help children and families meet their basic needs, provide educational supports and teach parenting and resiliency skills. We are unique in that along with our direct services we also provide strong public policy advocacy to local and state leaders to ensure policies are in place to support families. .

Our mission is to empower children and their families to reach their full potential through advocacy, education and services.  The mission of Communities In Schools is to surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life. Last year, Children First/CIS advocated for 100% of the children in our community, and provided direct services to 6% (2,856) of the children in Buncombe County.
