Reducing Poverty One Family at a Time!

our determined families


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.            

our community volunteers


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. 

results - effecting individual and community change

 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.
