Here's a sample of our volunteer opportunities:VIEW AS
Our mission is to inspire and equip Pittsburgh area families and communities to resolve poverty and thrive. We believe no one should live in poverty. Families and communities can take charge of their destinies. And if given the right tools and support, economic stability can be achieved.
Circles(r) is a nationally-known, proven, and innovative way of connecting people across socioeconomic lines in an effort to move people & families out of poverty. Yes, out of poverty! Our society has been successful at creating programs that only manage poverty, but this program is about the longer term, harder work of moving people out of poverty. Good jobs, saving, investing and changing lives and families for good.
The Circles program is not a 4-week class, and it’s not a handout...it’s a lot of work for everyone involved. But we know it works. A 2014 National Survey of Circle Leaders who stayed in the program for at least 18 months showed that earned income increased by an average of 181%, and cash assets increased by 206%. We’d like to see a lot of those kinds of numbers in Pittsburgh.
