Across this country, decade after decade, we have been inching toward solutions, helping a small number of people to find their way out of poverty.
The Neighborhood Partnerships Model will change that, utilizing collaborations across the above sectors of society to help whole neighborhoods rise out of poverty. This work will focus on creating the foundation necessary for every member in the community to prosper: the creation of safe and vibrant neighborhoods, the provision of education and professional development programs, the development of long-term support for individuals, and the assurance of quality housing for all.
Safe & Vibrant Neighborhoods:
- Community Safety Collaborations
- Transportation Access
- Health and Wellness Services
Education & Professional Development:
- Well-Resourced Schools
- Workforce Entry & Advancement Training
- Comprehensive Youth Programming
- Dedicated Employer Pool
- Individual Wraparound Partnerships
- Sister Organizations
- Comprehensive Resource Networks
- Transformation of Underutilized Space
- Provision of Basic Need Items
- Community-Based Support Services
In May 2015, we launched our first Neighborhood Partnership Program in Southeast Washington, DC.
“Out of 13 years I’ve lived here nobody has ever done anything like what you all are doing here.” – Andrea
“I think about A Wider Circle every day as I get dressed for work, because I wouldn’t have this wardrobe without you. One of the volunteers gave me the scarf she was wearing because it just made my outfit. It made me cry.” – Jennifer
