It can be tiresome and overwhelming trying to put food on the table or pay the bills. Sometimes it is impossible to see the light at the end of the tunnel as you struggle to survive and keep your family safe and healthy. You see opportunities around you, but you are never sure if they are the right ones or how to take the right step for fear of tipping the teetering scale the wrong direction.
If this sounds like you, then Circles of Putnam County is for you. Whether you receive assistance like SNAP, Medicaid, or other benefits; or you are under-resourced, making just enough NOT to qualify for assistance, but still struggling, Circles can be the guiding light you need.
You will attend a free 12-week learning experience and gain tools to help you on your journey on Thursdays from 6-8 pm at Gobin United Methodist Church in Greencastle. Families and individuals are welcome. Free dinner and childcare are provided. You will also meet community members who can offer valuable resources and guide you to opportunities. After the 12-weeks, you will be paired with Allies who check in with you, support you, and help you on your path from simply surviving to fully thriving. You will be part of a community with the opportunity to continue coming each week as often as you like. You will be listened to and your views can be part of conversations that empower others. If you would like to attend one of the weekly gatherings and enjoy good food or sign up for the group, contact Lori Miller at 765-653-6049. Orientation for the new season is February 6, 2020 with the training starting on February 13.
