This week’s episode of That Podcast in Hutch features Marla McKee and Anthony Frischenmeyer with Circles of Hope. 

According to its website, Circles of Hope “gathers people who are motivated to move out of poverty and matches them with middle-income and high-income volunteers who can support and encourage them on their journey.”

But as you’ll hear in this conversation, Circles does much more than that. It expands understanding – between families in poverty and middle income families. And through those shared experiences and understanding, they learn from one another. 

Additionally, families have multiple training sessions, or “conversations” as Anthony prefers to call them, that help families develop the skills they’ll learn as they move out of poverty and into stability, and middle class life. 

I’ve long been a fan of Circles of Hope and its work in our community. They are combating poverty at every level – but most importantly, they are doing it one family at a time, with compassion and love.
