Circles is a program which helps low-income people become self-sufficient while also giving them the opportunity to be involved in community change efforts. Circles creates relationships across class lines by matching volunteers from the middle class and wealth to a family or individual in poverty, creating a positive and supportive "intentional friendship". Circles meets weekly on Wednesday evenings.
Each week, Circles participants, kids, volunteers, and visitors meet to share a meal, form friendships, educate one another, create community change, and solve problems. Each meeting begins with a meal - a crucial time to break bread together and build community. We need volunteers to help prepare (on an as-needed basis), serve, and clean up (high-powered, high-capacity electric dishawashers are available) after our weekly dinners, which serve about 50 people.
