National Recruiter and Coordinator from Circles Canada in Sudbury

Gayle Montgomery is the Circles Canada National Recruiter and Coordinator for the County of Lambton Social Services Division. Circles is a hands-on community strategy that helps hard working people transition out of poverty.

In February 2018, the Circles program was officially launched in Sudbury with the support of a Local Poverty Reduction Fund grant. This work is being led by Public Health Sudbury & Districts in partnership with the Partners to end Poverty, a steering committee made up of local agencies with a passion and commitment to poverty reduction from across Greater Sudbury.

Circles is a poverty reduction program. The goals of Circles are to:
• Build relationships among community members across all income levels to improve the lives of people living in poverty.
• Support individuals and their families as they work through their personal action plan to exit poverty.
• Work with participants, volunteers and community partners to identify and address key barriers that keep people in poverty.
• Create positive change in the community to improve opportunities for everyone to do well.
