For over 30 years, Counseling In Schools (CIS) has promoted the emotional and social growth of children in New York City public schools so that they can thrive in class and succeed in life. CIS places mental health professionals in schools and homeless shelters to create and foster community-based relationships that equip children, families, teachers, and administrators with the tools to prevent and cope with the obstacles students and their families are experiencing. A 501(c)3 non-profit organization based in New York City, CIS works with the entire school community to aid their journey and reach their full potential. For more information, please visit
