About Mountain Circle


Story

Mountain Circle Family Services, Inc. is a non-profit community-based organization, committed to ensuring stability and life sustaining changes for foster and adoptive children. Since 1986, Mountain Circle has supported over 3,500 children and families in their journey to a healthier future. Our approach is simple: Offer the best possible training to resource families, provide 24/7 support by experienced social workers/mentors, and equip older foster youth with the skills they will need to be productive adults in the real world.

Mountain Circle’s Vision:

To assist, educate, and support children, youth, and families to be successful through best practice knowledge, quality, and sustainable programs.

Mountain Circle’s Values:

Relationships are integral to who we are. We believe in providing people with a hand-up to help better themselves. We strive to be a permanent and impactful resource in the communities we serve. An innovated spirit is ever-present in all we do and drives our desire to make the most of our programs and revenues. We uphold ourselves, and those with whom we work, to high-quality work and standards.We strive to serve as a model among and advocate for children & youth.

Mountain Circle’s Annual Fundraiser, the Running with the Bears Race:

On one special Saturday in August, the staff, volunteers, and Resource Families of Mountain Circle put on the Running with the Bears Event, a fundraiser for the children we serve. Come qualify for Boston on a beautiful course with fewer rules and more running! Mountain Circle Family Services has been “running” this race since 2011.

The Bears’ is a uniquely rural experience; don’t expect any bathrooms lines or traffic. The only distractions might be the pair of mating hawks at Mile 7 (and some more at miles 10 and 12). What you get are good ol’ fashioned goody bags (filled with locally made products and, of course, bear bells!) and a home-grown run managed by the very charity it benefits. As you cross the finish line, you’ll be greeted with an ice cold beer* from a local brewery (The Brewing Lair), and a massage with a view of the whole valley.

Best of all? 100% of funds raised go to Mountain Circle Family Services’ Powder Quest Program- an outdoor adventure for youth in foster care. Thank you for your support, and happy running!”

* Juice, coffee, water, and hydration drinks also available of course.
