Become an ally
Allies are trained volunteers from our community engaging in an intentional, befriending relationship with an individual or family working to become self-sufficient.
A Circle Ally looks just like YOU! Someone who genuinely wants to share their gifts, talents, and most importantly their friendship, with a Circle Leader who is struggling to become self-sufficient and working on creating a better life for their family!
