The journey out of poverty is overwhelming, complex, and difficult.

The GAIN Initiative (formerly Circles®/Anti-Poverty) is a network designed to move our community out of poverty together. Its unique perspective is that relationships are the key to overcoming poverty. The GAIN Initiative connects people to people, bringing together participants and partners who work together to overcome poverty both individually and on a community level.

PARTICIPANTS:
• Gain relationships and resources on their journey out of poverty
• Gain valuable training to take charge of their lives
• Gain the opportunity to solve poverty in their community

PARTNERS:
• Gain a new perspective on poverty and socio-economic class
• Gain the ability to partner with those working to overcome poverty
• Gain the opportunity to solve poverty in their community

We’re seeing exciting results:
• Over 76 households have moved forward on their journey out of poverty
• Average income increase over 85%
• Former participants now serve on community advisory boards
