Circles of Hope

Circles of Hope is an initiative in the City of Newton and Harvey County to facilitate and support families and individuals working to get out of poverty. The Circles of Hope meets each Tuesday evening at Newton First United Methodist Church.

Circles of Hope is part of a national campaign. The Circles® Campaign is a transformational approach that partners volunteers and community leaders with families wanting to make the journey out of poverty. Operating in communities around the country, each Circles® initiative consists of families working to get out of poverty and several middle and upper income Allies who befriend them and lend support. The family is the Circle Leader, setting direction for activities. With the help and friendship of their allies, each family sets and achieves goals unique to their own needs.
