Circles of West Georgia is a chapter of the national organization Circles USA. Circles is a community-driven way to affect poverty and promote prosperity through long-term education and social support.
There are 20,000 families living in poverty in Carroll County. We can help these struggling members in our communities by addressing poverty, shifting from service delivery to self-sufficiency and community building.
A “Circle” is made up of one Circle Leader, a person or family motivated to work toward a more economically stable lifestyle, and two Allies, community volunteers willing to build a supportive relationship that will help people reach their goals.
