Scott Miller, CEO & Founder of Circles USA
Circles USA has been working to make a real impact on poverty since its incorporation in 1998. By employing a unique strategy that emphasizes a true community solution for people willing and ready to move out of poverty.
Circles have been featured by CBS Evening News, CNN, NPR, PBS, Stanford Social Innovation Review, Huffington Post, TedX, and most recently featured as the “Nonprofit Spotlight” in the quarterly magazine, Philanthropy Roundtable. We have been successful in obtaining funding for getting Circles off the ground from various national foundations and corporations, such as Green Mountain Coffee Roasters, The Walmart Foundation, Annie E. Casey Foundation and Joyce Foundation, and hundreds of local foundations, United Way and individual donors.
I first interviewed Scott two years ago when a Homeless Friend handed me a copy of his first book, “Until It’s Gone: Ending Poverty in Our Nation, in Our Lifetime” and asked me to be his Ally. That book led me to track down the Author and invite him on my show. That was two years ago this month.
Imagine this. I’m making sandwiches for the ever-growing line of people showing up every day, and then I read a book that outlines how to get people out of poverty. \
