At A Wider Circle, we know that the number one reason people are in poverty is birth. The number one reason people rise out of poverty is support—and that’s where you come in.
We are seeking volunteers to provide long-term, wraparound support to those seeking to rise out of poverty. Each volunteer will work as part of a group of four to provide support to one individual or family. Volunteers will help participants set and pursue achievable goals for themselves and their families in the following areas:
- Employment (Attainment and Advancement)
- Education (Self and Children)
- Financial Stability
- Health and Wellness
- Housing Stability
Partners will engage in problem-solving, identify helpful resources and trainings, and address barriers to independence. No expertise is needed—only humanity and compassion.
