A Wider Circle's Essential Support Program focuses on providing basic need items for the home to our neighbors seeking to rise out of poverty. This is a great opportunity for individuals, groups, and families. The donations we receive include household furniture, linens, kitchen items, toys, and professional clothing and accessories. Volunteers help us to sort donations and stock the showrooms our clients select their items from. With the help of volunteers like you, A Wider Circle is able to furnish 20 homes free of charge each day for our neighbors in need - that's 4,500 families served each year!
If you are looking for volunteer opportunities for your company, faith community, or friend group, we can host groups of all sizes, from 2-120+. Reach out today to schedule!

This mission of A Wider Circle is simple: to end poverty for one individual and one family after another
A Wider Circle is a 501(c)(3) grassroots nonprofit organization that provides holistic support to families in need. We furnish the homes of children and adults who are transitioning out of domestic violence or homeless shelters, or who are simply living without what most of us take for granted - beds, dressers, sheets, towels, and other basic need items. We offer educational programs on topics ranging from job skills and money management to stress management and other life skills. We also provide wrap-around support to those seeking to enter or re-enter the workforce, including professional attire, education, and one-on-one support. We work with the most vulnerable among us, and we do whatever we can do to help them move toward stability and independence.
