During these challenging times, Communities In Schools of Kent is supporting students, families and connecting the broader community/resources in the following ways…
Community: We established a community support line (253-867-5637) to answer questions, identify needs, and connect people to resources in partnership with organizations, businesses, local government, service clubs and faith communities.
Students: We are communicating on-line if they have computers, by phone if they don’t, and by mail as well. The goal is to provide social-emotional support and encouragement as they try to make sense of all that is happening.
Families: We are checking in with families to provide help with food, supplies and referrals for additional services and supports.
Mentors: We are helping Mentors keep in touch with students through mail! This is a great way to provide a safe and encouraging place for our students and mentors to connect. A huge thank you to all our mentors! 😊
