Circles provide community support to someone recently released from prison or jail (core member) working to achieve successful transition from incarceration.  Circles are made up of 3 to 4 people who meet with the core member on a regular basis for at least six months and sometimes up to a year.  They provide encouragement, mentoring, ideas and moral support.
