Circles® Canada - Canadian Campaign
Circles® is a collaborative committed to the elimination of poverty in our community in our lifetime by exploiting the power of a caring community working together. Circles® is a supportive, intentional, reciprocal, befriending relationship comprised of a Circle Leader, a family working to get out of poverty, and two to four community Allies, middle class people who are willing to befriend the family and support their way out of poverty.

WHAT WE DO
Circles® Canada is a poverty alleviation strategy working to build relationships across socio-economic classes to empower people and communities to thrive! Our model focuses on three strategies for people in poverty: crisis management and stabilization; education, job placement and job retention; advancement and economic stability.
Circles® is a collaborative committed to the elimination of poverty in our community in our lifetime by exploiting the power of a caring community working together. Everyone needs enough relationships, resources and reasons to thrive.
In 2009 Lambton County launched the 1st Circles® Initiative in Canada. Based on its tremendous success, Circles® is expanding rapidly across Canada.
