Mission:

Hundreds of thousands of parents watching their children go to sleep each night in beds rather than on the floor. Children picking out their school clothes each morning from dressers rather than plastic garbage bags. Low-income, pregnant adolescents receiving comprehensive care-taking skills needed to raise healthy babies. Recently-homeless parents learning – and putting into practice – the basic life skills needed to find and retain a job. This is why we are here, to create what is possible. The mission of A Wider Circle is simple: to help children and adults lift themselves out of poverty.
