Welcome to the
Circle for Change Initiative

Where nature connection serves as the lifeline for all our endeavors. Our primary activities fall under non-residential social assistance services, particularly in health care and social assistance. At the core of our mission is a commitment to individual and family services, aligning with the broader vision of establishing sustainable lifestyles and strengthening connections to the land, oneself, and others.

Our charitable and not-for-profit programming is designed to address pressing issues and create meaningful impact. We strive to support elders, families, at-risk youth and those with disabilities in developing sustainable lifestyles. Additionally, we tackle homelessness through our dedicated support program, aiming to prevent and alleviate the challenges faced by those in need.

In our pursuit to relieve poverty, we provide programs that equip participants with job skill sets, offering a blueprint for financial stability and fostering sustainable relationships. Simultaneously, we are dedicated to protecting the land for future generations by educating communities on essential skills related to caring for the environment, growing their own food, and cultivating a deep connection to nature.

The Circle for Change Initiative is a grassroots organization that specializes in support programs for people with special needs. Whether through group workshops, one-on-one mentoring, anchoring, counseling, or presentations, we focus on healing, traditional knowledge, and lifeways. Our overarching mission is to empower and uplift those we serve, guiding individuals on their health, healing, and personal growth journeys.

Join us on this transformative path, where the circle of change encompasses healing, connection, and empowerment for individuals and communities alike.
