Surround supports offered by partners of Say Yes Syracuse address the barriers that could prevent Syracuse City School District students from succeeding in school.

Legal Clinics

Say Yes Legal Clinics assist families of children in the Syracuse School District with legal issues that may interfere with their child’s ability to succeed in school. The legal clinics are part of the Volunteer Lawyer Project and the Onondaga County Bar Association.

Family Services

Coordinated Care Services, Inc. has partnered with the Syracuse City School District to provide Family Support for Student Success, a voluntary parent driven program that helps families remove barriers to engagement in school and student success.

Mental Health Clinics

As part of the Promise Zone commitment, the Onondaga County Department of Mental Health, SCSD, Say Yes, and the community-based organizations now have mental health clinics in all school in the district.
