Support Circles Informational Flyer ~ A general program overview.

Program Guidelines
~ A detailed overview of Support Circle program guidelines.

Informed Consent for Research ~ Support Circles is partnering with the Community Development and Research program out of Vanderbilt's Peabody College. This form contains details on that research component.

Friendship at the Margins, Chapter 1 ~ The first chapter of the book by Christopher Heuertz and Christine Pohl about discovering mutuality in service and mission. Together they show how friendship is a vocation that can bring reconciliation and healing to our broken world. When we befriend those on the margins of society by practicing hospitality and welcome, they say, we create communities where righteousness and justice can be lived out.

Other free resources to support your work in reducing poverty and building sustainable communities. ~ A resource page of PDFs based on Ruby Payne's "A Framework for Understanding Poverty".
