At A Wider Circle, we do much more than furnish homes - providing top-notch adult education classes, comprehensive job support, and more - but, wow, do we ever furnish homes!

To date, A Wider Circle has furnished the homes of 19,236 families. This represents more than 72,000 children and adults who now have their basic need items and live each day with greater dignity and stability.


“I couldn't believe all the things we got. I felt like someone actually cared about the service I did for my country. I can't wait to get home and sleep in my brand new bed!”
- Quinuanah, a veteran served in 2013
“I have been homeless and living in poverty. When I came to Wider Circle I felt like a new person.”
- Deandra, served 2012

It's the 2014 Race to End Poverty!
