About Children First/Communities In Schools

Children First/Communities In Schools addresses the challenges to academic achievement that children not born to privilege experience by empowering K-6 students and surrounding them with a community of support in school, after school, and in their homes and communities.

Together with collaborative non-profits, teachers, parents, donors, and volunteers, Children First/Communities In Schools delivers highly accountable, evidence-based direct services; positive child and parent relationships; open hearts and helping hands; and aspirational advocacy to ensure all children can thrive.

We work to strengthen relationships with children and families by keeping students on track for academic success while using public policy to build a more family-friendly, affordable Buncombe County.
