October 10, 17, & 24- Dream Big, Plan Smart! 

This three-part miniseries aims to create an artistically inspired setting for planning our lives!  Let's break our lives down into "departments" and unleash our inner child to make vision boards!  In order to go forward with our next steps, we will examine what we wish to accomplish(dreams) and create S.M.A.R.T. goals. We will learn to take action & what tools we need to be successful!

November 7, 14, & 21- "Feeling Change" 

Ready to make a change? Experiencing a big life transition? Wanting to learn more about tools you can keep in your mental well-being toolbox? Join us as we spend 3 weeks together learning more about our brains, feelings, and bodies, what happens when big change comes our way, and a few tools for being our best selves, no matter what life throws our way!

Heights of Hope partners with Good Samaritan Ministries to offer Circles, an 18 - month national program designed to empower and equip families to move out of poverty and thrive. The method is intentionally relationship- and community-driven and brings together people from all walks of life to support our Circle leaders and create change in our community. Watch the videos on the Circles USA webpage to learn how the program works.

The program starts with training and equipping leaders from our neighborhood who identify their strengths and create long term goals. Leaders are then each matched with two to three allies from our neighborhood and greater community, who come alongside them to offer support and encouragement. This method is rooted in the belief that the responsibility for both poverty and prosperity rests not only in the hands of individuals, but also with societies, institutions, and communities.

Here are ways you can get involved:
