More Than a Race

The Race Against Poverty is an opportunity to stand as a community against the poverty that grips many of our own and stifles our full potential. Poverty impacts the entire community and requires community solutions.

Stories of Change


SCCAP empowers families and engages the community as we pursue innovative and effective solutions to break the cycle of poverty. Support Circles is one of the ways SCCAP works with individuals and families to stabilize, create a future story, and achieve their goals and thrive.

As we do this, we see families improve their health and wellbeing and join efforts to build a stronger community.

Support Circles

Support Circles builds relationships that inspire and equip our community to overcome poverty. We initiate purposeful new friendships and partner with families to develop their own future stories, working to support them in meeting their goals.

Through this community initiative, we see people move into long-term stability as their dreams become a reality, identify common obstacles, and learn how to create a more vibrant community! In the Support Circles initiative, there are many opportunities for individual and community involvement to support this critical work.
