Traditional programs focus on wellness and health behavior change with an established agenda for participants to adopt a particular lifestyle. By design, the Circle Model seeks to replace change-driven system interventions and empower participants to develop a lifestyle that works for them. Participants are then able to take charge of their health by providing tools and resources to improve overall health and well-being.
The Circle Model is a participant-inspired wellness path to discover one's self-worth. The process is participatory, reflective, and inclusive, which encourages participants to recognize that their voice matters.
Regardless of age, race, gender, ethnicity, or other background, the Circle Model provides a wide array of individualized solutions to various communities including the implementation of harm reduction strategies and supporting children, adolescents, and people of child-bearing age. We are dedicated to eliminating Hepatitis C and addressing healthcare inequities through partnerships with community based organizations, syringe service programs, clinics, hospitals and other settings.
