Have you ever wondered what it would be like to be in Circles? Individuals and Families who are living in poverty​ are invited to apply for the next two classes of Circle Leader training. Over the course of  12-14 weeks, you will meet once a week with other families and learn about goal setting, financial skills like budgeting and managing your money, etc.
