The children and teens who come to live at Circle C have all gone through difficult times. Child welfare personnel have recommended that it is in their best interest to live somewhere other than at home. Kids coming from a local shelter or from other residential care facilities must adjust to living in a different setting, and have a variety of needs that our group home, supervised independent living, and foster home programs do their best to address.

The young adults entering the "R U Ready?" transition program have many needs for hands-on guidance and support as they make the difficult transition to adulthood without the "safety net" of a supportive family. Circle C's challenge is to engage each one, build a positive relationship, and offer new hope, direction, and skills needed to overcome issues that have brought them into our care.

We are grateful for our many partners and supporters in this mission, and for your interest in our organization! We invite you to explore our site, and get to know how Circle C has been helping to meet the needs of kids, young adults, and their families in the Pittsburgh area for almost a half century!
