Mission Statement

Inspire and equip families and communities to resolve poverty and thrive by: (1) mentoring people to earn at least 200% of the Poverty Level; (2) helping 10% of people in poverty achieve their goals; (3): working to eliminate the "cliff effects" that prevent people from "moving up"

Description

Circles USA believes that no one should live in poverty and has developed a national program, with chapters in 23 states, to help families "move up". Circles offers unique support to make a difference in the lives of people who are motivated to move out of poverty.

Circles Fresno, Inc. became a non-profit chapter in October, 2015. and needs "Allies". Initially, Allies receive training to listen, support and mentor a person in poverty, called a "Leader". Leaders receive separate classes and will be matched with 2 Allies when the classes are completed. This generally requires 6-10 volunteer hours a month.

If you are interested or have questions, I would love to talk with you. Carol at 559 797-5304
