Circles NWA is a community-driven program that works to increase upward mobility for individuals and families in poverty in Northwest Arkansas. Based on the national Circles®USA model, the Circles program builds intentional relationships (social capital) across socioeconomic lines that help open up long-term pathways for economic mobility and self sufficiency.

It is our strongest belief at Circles that those closet to the problems must play a significant leadership role in identifying the needed solutions to poverty in Northwest Arkansas. At Circles, our participants are called Circle Leaders and they are matched with 2-3 volunteer Allies who commit to walking alongside their Circle Leader as they set goals to improve their lives, increase their income, and expand their social networks. 

At Circles we are building community to end poverty.
