Circles Chatham: Pathway to a better life
Poverty is a fact of life for 1 of every 6 children living in Chatham County. The problem is even greater in individual communities, such as the Pittsboro and Siler City areas, where nearly 1 of every 3 children is being raised in poverty.
You can help turn that around by joining forces with Circles Chatham. Our mission is to connect people who are struggling financially with the experiences, opportunities, and relationships they need to get ahead in life.
Circles Chatham is part of Circles USA, a successful anti-poverty campaign that is active in more than 70 communities across the country. Check out the CBS news video below, which shows how -- and why -- it works.
