OWCAP's Circles Program in Weber County

Circles USA Mission: To inspire and equip families and communities to resolve poverty and thrive.

Circles is a free resource for families who would like to improve their lives by increasing their social capital, improving job skills, and connecting to members of the community. Through open conversation about the unwritten rules of the middle class, participants claim a stake in the community and become advocates for themselves and other families in need by attending weekly classes.

Through training and weekly meetings, participants (called Circle Leaders) build friendships with volunteers (called Circles Allies). Over time, these relationships help families climb out of poverty and achieve financial stability.

Circles isn’t about quick fixes or handouts. Circles equips families and individuals with the relationships, confidence, skills, and knowledge required to be self-reliant. Circles is a long-term program that assists families and individuals in reaching financial stability.

What can I expect from Circles Weber County?

  • Long-term goal setting
  • Establishing your own support network
  • Creating an individualized plan just for you
