This grant will provide support for The Circles Program, a comprehensive approach to help communities and individuals address generational and situational poverty. Circles is a mentor based program in which individuals coach participants in setting and attaining individual goals aimed at poverty alleviation. Workshops are held to give understanding to the root causes of poverty and assist individuals in beginning to work on strategies designed to alleviate poverty. The 2007 Census Bureau data shows that 21.3% of Anson County citizens live below the poverty line compared with 14.3% statewide. The project will work to move Anson County families out of poverty.
