How You Can Get Involved


Circles of McPherson County welcomes volunteers in various capacities and levels of involvement that would interest you.
Some of these opportunities include:

CIRCLE LEADER TRAINING/CIRCLE LEADER: An individual or family that is "sick and tired of being sick and tired" and ready to make a change in their life in order to move out of poverty. 

ALLIES: Commit to an intentional friendship with a family or individual in poverty and join them in their quest to have enough relationships, resources and reason in their lives.

PROVIDE A MEAL: Circles meets weekly on Thursday evenings and begins with a family-style meal provided by volunteer organizations. We typically have 50-60 people attending weekly.

You can now sign up to bring a meal online on Sign Up Genius at http://www.signupgenius.com/go/4090a4caeae28a6fe3-circles

CHILDCARE: In addition to a weekly meal, childcare is also provided for our families. If you like to hang out with elementary children working on crafts, helping with homework or reading; or if you like to hold and play with babies/toddlers, we would love to have you be a part of our Thursday evenings.

JOIN ONE OF OUR TEAMS: Five Teams make up Circles that work to help our families transition out of poverty. They are:

Career & Education - Helps our Circle Leaders with education opportunities that will help them secure a better paying job.

Resource - Includes recruting Allies, fundraising and building resources that will benefit our Circle Leaders, i.e. car repair, home repair, legal affairs, budgeting, etc.

Big View - Looks at the systemic barriers in our community that keep families in poverty. Our first Big View topic has been bringing a safety-net clinic to our community that sees patients with low income and/or no insurance. It is anticipated we will open the doors to this clinic by year end 2016. We are now exploring restorative juvenile justice.
