“For too long, the size and scope of poverty in this country have left people believing that little can be done to create real change. A Wider Circle’s growth over fifteen years, serving clients with compassion, delivering a comprehensive strategy to reach the whole person, the whole family, the whole community, and affecting measurable change, demonstrates that we no longer can accept poverty as an inevitable component of our society. I am proud to join the organization at this critical juncture, and to be a changemaker in the fight to eradicate poverty.”
