Circles empowers families to exit poverty by providing them with training, tools, resources, and most importantly relationships, that help them overcome barriers and achieve financial success. Circles reduces poverty! It’s about intentional relationships across income lines. While middle-income and high-income families enjoy networks of support through their jobs, schools, and neighborhoods, families living in poverty rarely develop such contacts. Many who live in poverty are hardworking and motivated, so when a circle of support forms around them, advice is offered, contacts are shared, and the fears that keep people in poverty start to disappear.
