“I have one 11-year-old son, who has some special needs, and that is actually why we live below the poverty level right now.”

Circles™ is an intentional way for people to build relationships across class and race lines to end poverty in their communities. A Circle is a supportive, intentional, reciprocal, befriending relationship made up of one Circle Leader who is living in poverty and two to five Circles Allies who usually are from middle class. A Circle typically meets once or twice a month to build friendships and to work on the Circle Leader’s dreams, plans, and goals.
