The inability of many of Waukesha County ’s citizens to meet their basic life needs is a problem that affects the entire community. Even though Waukesha County is one of the wealthiest counties in the state, almost 12% of the population is considered low income or working poor. Those who lack adequate economic, social and psychological well-being are often times unable to access the resources necessary for attaining employment, health care, food, clothing and shelter. This creates pressure for public and private health and human service agencies, the health care system and taxpayers in general. Establishing an action plan for the working poor that identifies resources to help begin their move to self-sufficiency plays a vital role in overcoming the effects of poverty.
