Circles of Opelika is a program that assists in reducing the number of families living in poverty in our community. Our goal is to employ long-term solutions versus short-term fixes to lead to economic stability and sustainability for families in Opelika. Circles® is a national relationship-based movement to help communities become educated about the causes of poverty and the barriers that keep people in poverty, and it directly helps individuals and families living in poverty to achieve self-sufficiency. Circles is in more than 70 communities throughout the U.S. and Canada.
Circles of Opelika hopes to raise $25,000 to support their community gatherings that help create intentional friendships that strengthen Opelika’s community. Your gift will help provide meal supplies, community meals, childcare for program families, family fun nights, and training materials for Circle Leaders. Circles of Opelika is a new initiative by Envision Opelika implemented under Circles USA. The goal is to move people from poverty to financial stability through community organizing, leadership, peer to peer counseling and learning.
