At the heart of the Circle of Love vision are the needs of those on the streets of our city and we seek to implement practical solutions that address those needs.
We meet immediate needs by providing food, shelter and clothing. But we believe that a vital emphasis on spiritual values provides hope and results in changed lives.
At the Circle of Love shelter, those without hope will find a safe place that provides a vision for people and the wisdom for living life. It is a place that allows power to be released enabling people to struggle well with life. It is a place where people are stirred by the study of God's word and learn to serve others.
