How We Help

A Wider Circle’s efforts focus on the provision of basic need items, workforce development, wraparound support, and neighborhood revitalization. These four components work in concert to create lasting change in the lives of those we serve. A Wider Circle says no to nobody! Anyone in need of help can find it here. In addition to all of the individuals and families that call us, more than 500 government, social service, and nonprofit agencies regularly contact us for help in serving their clients.

“It doesn’t feel like the world is caving in on me anymore.  It’s hope.  A Wider Circle gave me hope.”

 – Jeanine, served by A Wider Circle in 2013 and still attending our Adult Education series


“It is a lot of hard work, and I am ready for that. A Wider Circle blessed me and my family, and now I am working full time and going to school at night. I am ready for whatever it takes.

“I couldn’t believe all the things we got. I felt like someone actually cared about the service I did for my country. I can’t wait to get home and sleep in my brand new bed!”

– Quinuanah, a veteran served by A Wider Circle

“I just sat up all night at the frame of the bed thinking and thanking God that there are people like you and a place like this. My house feels like a home again

– Jackie

“You renewed my spirit as a parent and helped to satisfy my hunger to build a safe, warm, nurturing, and cozy home in which I can raise my family. Thank you for your kindness, support, and hard work.”

– Kendra

“A Wider Circle helped me start back on my feet again and made me feel like I was getting somewhere in my life. I was able to provide the children with beds, their dressers, dining room table, kitchen utensils, pots and pans, something to eat on – I didn’t have anything. It’s gotten me back on my feet.

– Michelle

“Right now I am so happy that I am unable to fall asleep. Normally, my son and daughter would fall asleep with me on a queen sized mattress on the floor in my bedroom.
Tonight they are asleep in their individual rooms, in their own beds!! Tomorrow I will make dinner for us to eat all together at the table! I cannot thank you all enough. Your deeds, caring and kindness really did a lot for myself and my family.”

– Noreen

“For a person that knows hardship and is in dire need, it is very gratifying to have people such as AWC to assist the poor and less fortunate.  It can bring tears of joy to a grown man’s eyes.”

– John

“It is very refreshing to see in a world of complacency, such a group of dedicated Americans who selflessly dedicate their time and energy to those in need. I am happy to announce that the circle has increased by one grateful American.”

– Major Christopher D. Holoman
