Funded Programs

Our funders further our mission of helping kids stay in school and prepare for life.

Through our community partners’ investment in Communities In Schools, we are able to bring approximately $217,000 annually in grant funding from outside of the community to serve the children and families of Lincoln County who are the greatest risk of not achieving their maximum potential in life. Thank you to Juvenile Crime Prevention Council (JCPC) for making these programs possible!

 

CIS After School

CIS of Lincoln County has been the sponsor for a “After School program since it’s inception in 1994. The program was established to reduce the instances of juvenile crime—both as perpetrator and as victims—during the hours of 3-6pm—a time when most teenagers tend to be unsupervised. The program provides a safe, healthy, and fun alternative for students to access after school. The students receive a snack, help with their homework, and get to participate in a wide variety of activities and field trips.

 

Strengthening Families Program

The Strengthening Families program currently serves primarily court-referred youth and their parents. Research has shown that children succeed when parents possess two basic skills: consistent discipline and support. The focus is on helping parents and children recognize and avoid family-related risk factors for problem behavior and build positive factors into the family for reinforcement and support.

 

Restitution Program

The goal of the Gives Back/Restitution program is to offer the juvenile an option to give back to the community. The program uses local organizations such as churches and civic groups; government agencies, and non-profit agencies to provide opportunities for the juvenile to pay back restitution.

 

Transition Program 

The Transition program will provide both one-on-one and group mentoring activities between adults and students attending Asbury Academy. The CIS Transition Coach will match, monitor and assist in maintenance of the student-mentor relationship.
