Waupaca County

Emergency Assistance Funds, Housing, Transportation etc.

Waupaca County is dedicated to our vision of helping keep the people of Waupaca County safe and connected.   In doing so, we know it is critically important that family connections are always preserved and strengthened.  We will use the S.O.W. Foundation donation as a proof of concept to prove the effectiveness of prevention based interventions.  Interventions that may sometimes be seen as outside of the box of normal Human Service, service delivery – perhaps even bordering into risk averse areas all in order to keep families and individuals connected at all costs.  So, interventions such as rental assistance or other housing assistance.   Emergency assistance funds for one-time purchases (appliances and such).  Transportation continues to be a major barrier in our area and surrounding areas, funds may be used towards car payments, gas cards etc.  We look forward to opening up the creativity in our problem solving with the generous donation and look forward to reporting back on the successes and number of people being served.
