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.
Looking at it's values and mission, I believe that everyone of us needs to find away to connect to another and to try and solve the problem of poverty!!! It affects us all whether we know it or not....when one hurts we all do
