Circles®  Whitewater Valley
The NCEC is the managing partner for the local Circles® program - Circles® Whitewater Valley. Circles® is a national campaign that takes an innovative and transformational approach to eliminate poverty.  The partners volunteers and community leaders with families in need.

Through weekly meetings, Circle Leaders examine the impact poverty has on them, their family and their community.  Over the next 15 weeks, they create a plan to reach their goals and dreams as they make their own choices.  Individuals and families begin to enjoy the power that comes from solving problems and controlling their own lives.

Because we recognize time is valuable, we provide free childcare during the weekly meetings, free dinner for participants and their children and periodic incentives for class attendance.

To learn more about the program and how you can become involved, contact Dana Sinclair at (765) 983-4764 or dsinclair@natcocu.org.

Many of the programs we offer are, in part, made possible by grant money received from other organizatinos. Thank you to the organizations who help support our mission!
