The Circles® Campaign of the Mid-Ohio Valley, Inc. is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization. We are a community based initiative that assists families in poverty to achieve their goal of self-sufficiency through education and supportive friendships with “Allies”. Our mission is to empower people from every economic class to solve poverty in their communities through individual transformation and community change.
Our local initiative uses a national model developed by Move the Mountain Leadership Campaign. The Circles model started in 2000 as a way to increase the capacity of communities to address poverty. The approach combines best practices in several disciplines including community organizing, coaching, grassroots leadership, SMART goal setting, financial literacy, mentoring, peer-to-peer counseling and learning, and child/youth development.
