Circles Initiative

circlesThe Circles Initiative is part of an innovative national movement that connects volunteers and community leaders to families wanting to make the journey out of poverty.

Volunteer Allies help families break the cycle of poverty by sharing their time and friendship. There are barriers that keep even the most motivated from achieving prosperity, but Circles breaks down these barriers by expanding opportunity and support for families as they create their own paths to stability. It encourages growth from people of all financial classes and engages the community as a whole, so we can work together to create deep and lasting change in Dubuque.

Our mission is to build collaborative circles of support that strengthen community, inspire tolerance, eliminate barriers and connect resources for those living in a cycle of poverty, so they may lead themselves and their families to permanent stability. We envision a community where all have the opportunity to succeed and contribute.
