    Poverty is a contributor to poor health yet it can be challenging to break the cycle of poverty. We analyzed the characteristics of 2,981 CirclesUSA program participants. Of the 2,981 who were screened at program intake, 12.8% achieved success. Participants were more likely to drop out if they had children at home and/or were experiencing generational poverty. Participants with full time employment, stable housing, access to transportation, who experienced situational poverty, held a degree or who were without children at home were more successful. The CirclesUSA approach to poverty is an effective peer coaching model.
