For 14.5 million children in America living in poverty, challenges outside the classroom can stand in the way of success inside the classroom.

That is where Communities In Schools steps in. 


Who we are

Communities In Schools of the Heart of Texas has been a part of the Waco community for 30 years. In that time we have served over 100,000 at-risk students by helping them achieve in school, graduate, and go on to bright futures. 


Our mission is to surround students with a community of support, empower them to stay in school and achieve in life. To accomplish this we provide a variety of programs and services to meet our students' needs. 

Get Involved

Without donor and volunteer support we would not be able to do the work that we do. YOU can make a difference and help change the picture for at-risk students that need your support. Find out how you can get involved today!
