The mission of A Wider Circle is to help individuals and families lift themselves out of poverty.

Join A Wider Circle’s Olympian Effort to end poverty in the Washington, DC region! 


The mission of A Wider Circle is simple: to help individuals and families lift themselves out of poverty. Each day A Wider Circle provides basic need items to families transitioning out of shelters or simply living without life’s necessities. We also go into low-income schools and shelters to lead educational workshops on topics ranging from healthy self-esteem and stress management to resume writing and financial planning.


There are many ways to serve our neighbors in need. A Wider Circle created the following five programs to work in concert to help children and adults of all ages lift themselves out of poverty. - Neighbor-to-Neighbor Program - Public Housing Wellness Program - School Community Program - Shelter Support Program - Well Mother, Well Baby Program


A Wider Circle helped me start back on my feet again and made me feel like I was getting somewhere in my life.  I was able to provide the children with beds, their dressers, dining room table, kitchen utensils, pots and pans, something to eat on I didn’t have anything.  It’s gotten me back on my feet.

For a person that knows hardship and is in dire need, it is very gratifying to have people such as AWC to assist the poor and less fortunate.  It can bring tears of joy to a grown man’s eyes.
