WHAT IS CIRCLES GREENVILLE COUNTY?
MissionCircles provides opportunities that inspire and equip families and communities to resolve poverty and thrive!
Circles Greenville County believes the ultimate responsibility for poverty or prosperity in our community rests not only in the hands of individuals, but within all sectors of our community. By engaging all segments of Greenville County, people learn to see each other differently and to think in new ways about poverty and how to eradicate it.
BackgroundTo that end, Buncombe Street United Methodist Church and SHARE have teamed up to bring Circles Greenville County to our community. As the first Circles chapter in South Carolina, we are connected to a network of 70+ Circles communities across 23 states and parts of Canada. CirclesUSA is our parent organization. For more information on them, please visit www.CirclesUSA.org.
