About A Wider Circle

In 2001, Dr. Mark Bergel founded A Wider Circle with the mission of helping children and adults lift themselves out of poverty. His goal was to create an organization that would address the whole person with programs that would not only tend to people’s tangible needs but also to their inner needs.

With each passing year, A Wider Circle has become a larger and larger part of the solution to ending poverty. Today, we operate out of our 20,000 square-foot Center for Community Service, with our Center for Professional Development just 50 yards down the street in Silver Spring, Maryland. It is due to the energy and commitment of our staff members, interns, and volunteers that allows A Wider Circle to now furnish the homes of more than 15,000 children and adults each year and deliver educational programs to thousands of men, women, and children.
