New Name New Vision “Conquer the C.H.A.O.S.” 
(Change Happens After Overcoming Struggles) 
A motivated group has been meeting weekly at Austin’s Grace Covenant Cherry Street Building since 2009. A desire to rise out of poverty has kept them coming all these years. Now, the Scott County Circles Campaign has begun exploring its purpose, its vision, and its name. 
The close-knit group’s motivation rises out of their desire to help others achieve or improve their quality of life. Their focus continues to be helping people out of poverty, but they also provide support for people in recovery and those overcoming great life challenges. 
Recently, they decided on a new name. No longer will they be known as “circles,” but rather “Conquer the C.H.A.O.S. (Change Happens After Overcoming Struggles). Leaders of their effort admit being trapped in the “tyranny of the moment” and caught in a poverty web. 
Changing habits, changing lifestyles, and changing beliefs is always a struggle, but the leaders know from experience that the change is worth the struggle. Living a life caught in the crisis of the moment means living in exhausting and draining chaos. The leaders have gone from living in this chaos to improving their life-situation, increasing income, and providing stability in their lives. 
Their desire is to help others in the community conquer the chaos in their lives. If you or someone you know lives in this cycle of chaos, please contact us at 812-752-6365 or come to the Cherry Street Building (south of Grace Covenant Church’s family life center) on Thursday night at 6:00 p.m. 
The Conquer the CHAOS group also needs volunteers to serve as Conquer Allies. These people journey with the Conquer leaders as they set and reach goals by attacking the chaos in their lives and moving toward thriving self-sufficiency. If you are interested in volunteering, please call 812-752-6365 or email us at info@scottcountypartnership.org.  
The more people that move from a life of chaos to one of thriving self-sufficiency, the more stable families will be. There will be fewer individuals who sink into a life of substance abuse, fewer children in need of services (because they’ve been removed from their homes), more children with quality supports so they can be successful in school, and more gainfully employed contributing members to society. It’s a win-win. 
Please VOLUNTEER to be a Conquer Ally, or contact us and sign-up to be a Conquer Leader working your way out of chaos and into a life of thriving self-sufficiency.
