Our mission at CIS is to provide wrap-around services to those in the community who have been marginalized by poverty, drug addiction, and trauma.

Our vision is to uplift the community and dismantle barriers through violence prevention, gang intervention, community empowerment, job development, parenting classes, and mental health programs. Our work is aimed at helping our participants develop the skills, relationships, and associations necessary to foster self-esteem,

persistence, and positive attitudes.
