The Foundations of East Chicago (FEC) looks for the collaboration of organizations that will do the most good for the people of East Chicago when awarding Collaboration Grants. Last year, a group of collaborators proposed the idea of implementing an Integrated Student Services program in schools in East Chicago. This program has been proven by the nationwide organization Communities in Schools (CIS), which is one of the collaborators on the East Chicago program. Learn more about what CIS does to help students around the country by checking out this video.
