Circles’ underlying foundation is to engage people and organizations in the community to move families permanently out of poverty. This is a community-based initiative that creates relationships across economic class lines, matching people of low income (Circle Leaders) with middle or upper-income Allies. The Circles Coach ensures those relationships thrive and Circle Leaders have access to resources, so they continue to progress. The Circles Coach works with the Circles Coordinator to engage the community in Circles, primarily working with the Circles Services, Jobs and Education and Community Resource Teams. The Circles Coach is a leadership position whose primary role is to work inwardly with the Circles community, supporting Circle Leaders, Allies, and volunteers. For more information see link.

There are several ways to become involved with Bridges Alliance. We also offer a spot for families, children, retirees, etc. Take your passion and share it with others whether that is serving food, sharing your job skills with our participants, or discussing poverty related issues with community decision makers.

In 2016, seeing a need for a solution to give individuals the tools and network we all need to live a sustainable life style, we formed our organization to provide sensible solutions to those in poverty. Educating others about poverty determined key in making systemic changes to our community. Bridges Alliance merges two national programs to educate for our community, volunteers, and participants, Bridges Out of Poverty and Circles USA.
By 2018, our Circles Program graduated its first cohort of participants. Past participants have described the program as life changing, enabling them to take the steps forward that they so needed.
We've touched over 350 individuals through training, allies, volunteers, poverty simulations and awareness presentations. This is evidence that our program is making a
difference in peoples' lives and in our community.
Our mission is a community collaboration to end poverty by providing proven tools, resources, support, and relationships to foster stability and independence.
