Our students and families face unique challenges. We provide individualized support to improve each family’s circumstances and positively impact home life for students. CUES has partnerships with community resources for food, medical and dental needs, social workers and job training programs. We identify urgent needs and connect families to transportation, employment, utility and rent assistance. We provide parenting classes, financial literacy and technology resources to ensure students can learn outside the classroom. In addition to this support, we build partnerships to provide before-care, after-care and summer programming. Our program extends beyond elementary education. We help graduates receive scholarships and we track their success.
“We break through language barriers, cultural differences, and economic challenges to help our students and families benefit from community resources. It is an honor and a blessing to play a small part in the lives of our families.”
— Jim Swanson, Director of Student and Family Support Services
