“The Circles’ model is an amazing tool to help move participants out of poverty. Attending the weekly meetings and hearing Circle Leaders call the group 'their Circles family' is especially moving. Seeing the work these people do is very humbling and worthwhile.” - Rebecca, Circles Coordinator
The influence of a new friend can mean a lifetime of success for individuals stuck in cyclical poverty, not to mention emotional fulfillment for their allies.

We believe social support is the most important step in solving poverty. Volunteering in Utah can mean a world of difference for local families. At risk individuals who are surrounded by emotional, social, and financial resources are more likely to be happy and successful. Allies are the difference.
The most basic requirement to be an ally with a Circles Initiative is a desire to help one’s community.
