Our Program

Project B.L.I.S.S. stands for Building Links Impact Self-Sufficiency. Community Action Partnership of Riverside County (CAP Riverside) and the Riverside County Board of Supervisors have adopted "BLISS COUNTY", the Vision of Riverside County without poverty. Project B.L.I.S.S. is the program that implements this Vision.

How the Program Works:

Project B.L.I.S.S. assists families in moving out of poverty by using the framework of the Circle. A Circle is a supportive, intentional, befriending relationship made up of one family Circle Leader who is living in poverty and three to five Circle Allies. A Circle meets to assist the Circle Leader and family to achieve prosperity.

 Ally

A Circle Ally is a community member who wants to be in a supportive, intentional, befriending relationship with a family working to get out of poverty. Circle Allies work with the Circle Leader to successfully accomplish the plan.

  Circle Leader

A Circle Leader is the head of a low-income family that is committed to a consistent path to self-sufficiency.

Guiding Coalition

A Guiding Coalition is composed of community leaders, elected and appointed officials and volunteers and families who are striving to get out of poverty. This group works to change the mindset and policies of their community with respect to poverty.

Circle Coach

A Circle Coach helps guide the Circle, helps coordinate activities, and facilitate attainment of the goal.
