In the city of Grand Rapids, more than 25 percent of citizens live at or below the federal poverty level, which is $24,600 for a family of four. Today in our community, one in four children is living in poverty.
Circles Grand Rapids is part of Circles USA, a high-impact strategy that engages the community in owning the solutions to poverty by:
Circles works via healthy, long term relationships to assist families and individuals to lead themselves into permanent self-sufficiency. No handouts are expected or given. Rather, community volunteers help under-resourced participants find better ways to budget, resolve conflict, create networks, and gain the skills needed for successful employment and advancement. People are supporting one another through friendship and fellowship to make life better for our whole community.
