Southeastern Utah Association of Local Governments Press Release
Wednesday night was a good night for a substantial audience and nine graduates of the Circles of Carbon County Initiative. Those nine became Circle Leaders after a number of months of attending meetings, learning and some hard adjustments.
Those becoming Circle Leaders, who will be paired with Circles Allies in the near future, include Emis Martinez, Fannie Martinez, Preston Goodman, Jacqueline Goodman, Christina Harrison, Jeremy Sanchez, Joni Sanchez, Christina Lake and Crystal Moss.
Circles is an initiative that helps build relationships within the community that inspire and equip families to reach 200 percent of the federal poverty guideline. Circles relies on support from the community and allies can play an important role in the lives of Circle Leaders.
It’s easy for one to feel that they can’t make a difference when it comes to solving world problems like poverty. Circles provides a practical way to get involved and help families learn to eliminate debt, go back to school and overcome the challenges that they face. The program brings the community one step further toward improving the quality of life in our community.
Circles of Carbon County is always looking for Allies. If interested, contact Renee Raso at (435) 613 0067 and at firstname.lastname@example.org
