Foundations of East Chicago (FEC) Collaboration Grants are given to groups of organizations that work to better the city of East Chicago. Communities in Schools (CIS) received a grant to implement the Integrated Student Services program which helps to keep students in school. This is a program that has worked for many of the CIS affiliates for 30 years. Learn more about this nationwide organization and some of the things that the Lake County office is doing by checking out this video.
