Positive Change

Homelessness doesn’t just mean finding shelter under a bridge, in Utah it can mean doubling-up or cohabitating in uncomfortable ways. Arrive Utah empowers families and individuals to help themselves step out of the cycle of poverty by bringing advocates and education into their lives in hopes of raising their average income in Utah.

History

In 2011 the first Circles Initiative chapter in Utah was started to solve poverty and improve the average income in Utah. Later, after funding was obtained, Community Action Services and Food Bank organized Arrive Utah to work on the statewide expansion. Arrive Utah is filing for their own 501(c)3 status and continues to lead the Utah Circles work through community support, training, start-up grants, Bridges Out of Poverty Trainings, coaching, advocacy, conferences and more.

Vision

We believe our communities are strong and stable when all families in them thrive. Our hope is to bring Utah voices together to Arrive with empathetic and sustainable solutions for resolving poverty and raising more individuals’ average income in Utah to a living wage. Arrive Utah leads the statewide expansions of the Circles Initiative.
