Circles of Hope

Circles of Hope of Haywood County  is part of the National Circles Campaign operating in 23 states and 62 communities.  We are committed to helping families get completely out of poverty and then building new systems of support that will help thousands to achieve economic stability.

A Circles initiative consists of families working to get out of poverty and several middle and upper income Allies who befriend them and lend support.  The family is the circle leader, setting direction for activities. With the help of their allies, each family sets and achieves goals unique to their own needs.

Circles of Hope is proud to be partnered with Mountain Projects who is our lead agency and also with Life Works who will be providing our Job and Life Skills classes.

If you would like someone from Circles of Hope to come speak at your church or organization about how we can eliminate poverty in Haywood County please email


We have two dates for getting deals – Black Friday and Cyber Monday – now, we have GivingTuesday, a day dedicated to giving back. On Tuesday, December 2, 2014, charities, families, businesses, community centers, and students will come together for one common purpose: to celebrate generosity and to give. It’s a simple idea.
