CIS Receives Network Partner Award from FirstLine Schools

Today, CIS of Greater New Orleans received the Network Partner Award from FirstLine Schools. CEO Jay Altman presented the award to CIS staff during the network's professional development gathering for staff working in all five schools FirstLine operates. CIS staff provided integrated student services at Joseph Clark High School and Phillis Wheatley Community School.

“Violence prevention and public safety have remained top priorities for this administration since we took office in 2010,” said Mayor Mitch Landrieu. “Connecting Students to Supports is a critical component of NOLA FOR LIFE’s work to protect our children. We’re grateful for the commitment of our teachers and school administrators who work every day to determine which children may be in need, and work to end the cycle of violence. We are also proud to partner with Chevron to support these non-profit organizations working to better our community.” Communities In Schools of Greater New Orleans was awarded a $136,500 grant to provide case management services that help kids complete school and succeed in life.

“Chevron believes every child deserves to have the tools and support they need to overcome obstacles they may be facing, excel in school, and succeed in life,” said Leah Brown, Public Affairs Manager for Chevron’s Gulf of Mexico Business Unit. “We’re proud to invest in NOLA FOR LIFE and these prevention, mental health and wellness services as part of our commitment to giving children an opportunity for a better future.”
