Circles is a nationwide movement of communities in the United States and Canada focused on ending poverty by breaking down systematic barriers and creating community. Circles accomplishes this through community members who step forward and become chapter members. Currently, there are over 70 operating chapters. Circles has 10 years of evidenced based research demonstrating the success of this comprehensive model. Through unique programming, families, called Circle Leaders, identify why they are in poverty and begin to develop a plan to get out of poverty. Meanwhile, their children work with trained volunteers to learn age appropriate skills that create conversation starters and move towards breaking the generational cycle of poverty. After graduating, they are matched with an Ally. An Ally is someone from a middle to high income willing to invest time and connections (social capital) into helping the family meet their goals. Because MU Extension’s efforts revolve around economic development and impact, they have chosen to bring this program to Springfield.

The Circles program is available at The Fairbanks in the Grant Beach neighborhood, Robberson Community School in the Robberson neighborhood and at the Dream Center in Woodland Heights.

Grant Beach Neighborhood Clean-up @ Central Assembly of God Parking Lot
Oct 27 @ 8:00 am – 12:00 pm

 

Residents and/or property owners in the Grant Beach neighborhood are invited to participate in the fall neighborhood clean-up. The City and the neighborhood association encourages residents to take advantage of this free and convenient opportunity to dispose of trash, brush and metal. Residents are encouraged to address overgrown fence rows, backyards and alleys adjacent to your property by mowing, cutting down, trimming and disposing of all brush and related debris.

Each year, neighborhood clean-ups serve approximately 900 households and remove over 175 tons of bulk waste (furniture, mattresses, etc.) and brush from Springfield neighborhoods. The clean-ups take place outside, rain or shine. Items accepted are trash, brush and metal. Curbside pickup is available, but fees may apply.

For more information, and to arrange a curbside pickup, please contact Pauletta Dunn at 417-880-2453.
