Ending poverty is the desired outcome of all that we do, and each aspect of A Wider Circle is pursued with that goal front and center. In pursuing this goal, we seek to shift the consciousness of individuals and society, as a whole, to one that does not accept poverty or allow it to continue. Now in our 17th year, we are driven more than ever to produce outcomes and move the needle with respect to the number of our fellow Americans in poverty.

A Wider Circle’s Neighborhood Partnerships initiative is one of two program realms that seeks to create sustainable change - in this instance at the community level  - through the transformation of neighborhoods allowing residents to live, work and thrive without displacement.
