Sussex Circles provides the supports and resources to families to become self-reliant and resilient.

Sophia Inclusive Catholic Community

A small faith-based community of approximately 30 members, their unwavering efforts substantially impacts the broader community. The Sophia Community is committed to reaching out to poor and marginalized populations, opening the doors to healing and a future of possibilities.

Sophia regularly donates time, energy and talents to meet the growing needs of the community.  They are intrinsically involved with Circles.  The members participate on the Guiding Coalition (Advisory Board), Recruitment Committee, Resource Committee, Curriculum Committee and serve as mentors to Circle participants building their pathway to prosperity. Their expertise guides Circles weekly educational sessions, recruitment efforts, fund development, strategic planning, and growth.  As mentors they assist Circle participants in increasing income, pursuing educational goals, reducing debt, securing transportation, improving credit scores and building supportive networks. Sophia’s legacy of kindness extends to feeding the hungry through recurring food donations and monetary contributions to a food pantry. Sophia’s unparalleled dedication to volunteering, improving the quality of life for struggling individuals serve as an inspiration to others to make a difference in their communities.
