Community Intervention & Educational Services is a community agency that services Winston-Salem and surrounding counties. The agency’s focus is to support and empower families and individuals in need of advocacy and quality support services stemming from crises. We believe that being able to do this takes a strong partnering with the judicial system, mental  health providers, law enforcement and those that  do other services that help those in the community.
