About Us


Communities In Schools South Central Texas, established by the Greater New Braunfels Chamber of Commerce over 30 years ago, is dedicated to empowering K-12 students for success in school and beyond. As the only campus-based nonprofit program for vulnerable students in our served school districts (New Braunfels ISD, Marion ISD, Comal ISD, Luling ISD, Schertz-Cibolo-Universal City ISD, and Seguin ISD), we currently impact over 42,000 students across 57 schools.

Our comprehensive services, including supportive guidance, mental health intervention, basic life needs support, tutoring, and college preparation assistance, reach over 4,000 students through professional site coordinators present daily in schools. Thanks to the support of 300+ local businesses, social service agencies, churches, and volunteers, every student in need receives vital assistance.

CIS collaborates with schools to connect students and families to tailored community resources, addressing health, behavioral, and family crises. Serving students facing challenges such as poverty, substance abuse, and poor mental health, CIS ensures safe and healthy environments both at school and at home. Our proven model, rooted in national research and community relationships, has positively impacted thousands of students and alumni over the past three decades.
