We never know the path others are traveling

It saddens my heart that so many are sick and so many are dying. May we at this time pause and have a moment of silence for those that we have lost. They are our family members, friends

r By Addy Klein, Circles Utah Valley

Circles Utah Valley is currently looking for Ally volunteers in the Nebo area to help local families overcome poverty by meeting at least twice a month during one year to clarify goals, provide accountability and create a meaningful friendship.

Volunteers see first-hand the impact their work has on their assigned family, come away with meaningful relationships and make a difference in their local community.

Dinner and childcare are provided at these meetings and community volunteers, called Allies, are partnered with local families and individuals to break bread and share experiences as well as connections and support, offering a hand up, not a hand out. Allies as a rule are never asked to give or donate money, only their time.

Anyone who can give constructive feedback, help break down goals into manageable steps, assist with career exploration and planning, help teach organizational and planning skills and be a supportive friend and offer encouragement is welcome to apply. A background check is required.

For information about these positions and more, contact Jessica Aubrey at 801-691-5242 or JAwbrey@CommunityActionUC.org. Circles Utah Valley engages the entire community to focus on collaborative ownership of the solutions to poverty.
