COMMUNITIES IN SCHOOLS

There is much talk in the news about the pronounced “learning loss” that is affecting K-12 students post-pandemic. In addition, there are many students who struggle because they lack basic school supplies, food, and clothing, and therefore attending school can be a challenge. All this impacts the most vulnerable kids – who may face hunger, homelessness, and trauma. Fortunately, there is an organization dedicated to helping students inside schools and beyond – wherever support is needed. For years, Communities In Schools® (CIS®) has worked in schools across the country to provide students with what they need to help them thrive. This includes placing caring adults, site coordinators who know the obstacles students are facing, by their side to provide a community of support. CIS staff ensure that students have everything they need to engage in learning.

YOUTH ADVOCATE PROGRAMS INC.

Like so many youth today, Blessyn’s life changed in an instant. The sudden loss of her mom made her feel depressed, resentful, and impulsive. She started acting out and began fighting in school.

In short, YAP is a community-based alternative to residential care, youth incarceration, and residential child welfare and behavioral health care. YAP gives program participants like Blessyn access to neighborhood-based Youth Advocates and Behavioral Health services, empowering them to see their strengths and connecting them with tools to make positive choices.

U.S. DEPARTMENT OF HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT

2023 marks the 55th anniversary of the passage of the federal Fair Housing Act. This is an ideal time to launch this year-long PSA campaign to combat housing discrimination, which is sponsored by the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development in partnership with the National Fair Housing Alliance. Sadly, housing discrimination complaints continue to climb. The best way to stop them is by educating those most vulnerable because of their race, color, national origin, religion, familial status, disability, sex (including gender identity and sexual orientation). Through a powerful and engaging spoken word performance, this PSA asks, “What is lost when a home is denied? When equality is cast aside?” Housing discrimination has no place in our nation!” By airing this new PSA campaign titled “Spoken Word” (:60, :30) you can help stop housing discrimination in your community.
