  • Mission:
  • To empower children and their families to reach their full potential through advocacy, education and services. As Communities In Schools, we surround students with a community of support, empowering them to stay in school and achieve in life.

  • History:
  • Originally created in the mid-1970’s as Youth Services Action Group (YSAG), we were a collective voice for the needs of youth in our community. Children First was established in 1992 as a program of the United Way and merged with YSAG in 1998. In 2003, Children First then merged with the local affiliate of Communities In Schools. Through our direct services, advocacy and collaborative efforts, Children First/CIS weaves together community members, organizations, volunteers, and resources to provide services to the working poor and families in crisis living in disadvantaged communities of Buncombe County.
