“Yay, Mom!” yelled the children as they applauded the achievements of their mothers who graduated from South Central Community Action Programs’ (SCCAP) year-long Support Circles course at a ceremony Wednesday night in Gettysburg.

Support Circles is a community engagement and social support program sponsored by SCCAP that helps people build an effective path out of poverty. The 12 graduates and their families have spent the past year attending weekly meetings where they participated in the “Getting Ahead in a ‘Just Getting By’ World” to create a “future story” for their family.
