Once families complete their time as co-investigators, they are matched with trained community members who are interested in gaining a better understanding of poverty in our community and becoming friends and "allies" to a family working to achieve stability.
Circle Leaders are families who are working hard, playing by the rules but stuck in poverty. Families spend 26 or more weeks as co-investigators with us on working to understand poverty and its implications on us as individuals and our community.
Circles works on a micro and a macro level. Both our Circle Leaders and our Allies experience significant change from being part of Circles, but we also see exciting changes take place in our communities.
