Thursday Evenings, 6:30pm-8:30pm
At Circles Indianapolis (www.circlesindy.org), we build intentional relationships among people from all walks of life to help individuals living in poverty build resources and achieve their unique goals and dreams. Through our relationship-based approach, we address barriers that keep people in poverty and provide support to overcome those barriers. To help overcome barriers to participate, we provide a meal and childcare at no cost for each of our weekly meetings. Over time with participation, incomes improve, debt and public assistance decreases, and long-lasting transformational friendships are built that strengthen the entire community.
We meet weekly in meeting space provided by Tabernacle Presbyterian Church at 34th/Central in Indianapolis.
Circles Indianapolis is a chapter of Circles® USA, a national relationship-based movement that is in more than 70 communities throughout the U.S. and Canada (www.circlesusa.org). Circles USA provides guidance and programming support to each chapter.
