Allies work directly with Circles participants, who are called "Circle Leaders" After both groups receive training, two Allies are matched with every Circle Leader. These intentional friendships are the foundation of the Circles model. Circle Leaders set their own goals. As an Ally, your job is to listen, ask questions, and make suggestions. You will help the Circle Leaders use their unique gifts and skills to reach their goals, and Circle Leaders will help YOU better understand your community and the needs that exist. Allies are expected to stay in touch with the Circle Leaders at least weekly and to attend 3-4 Circles weekly meetings/ month (currently via Zoom) . We will have a new group of Circle Leaders ready for Allies early this summer and are looking for volunteers now to train for this opportunity

Our mission is a community collaboration to end poverty by providing proven tools, resources, support, and relationships to foster stability and independence.

We've touched over 350 individuals through training, allies, volunteers, poverty simulations and awareness presentations. This is evidence that our program is making a difference in peoples' lives and in our community.
