Knowing where to turn can offer comfort and direction when an unexpected crisis occurs or when taking charge of life’s challenges. The Waushara Prevention Council, Inc. publishes information to keep residents informed of resources available to help. The 2012 Waushara County Resources page included in today’s paper is one such publication.
The bright yellow insert, designed to be kept in your home for future reference, can connect you to information when you need it. The page includes listings of crisis/emergency; food; discounted clothing; housing; legal; health; migrant, seasonal farm worker or Hispanic; transportation and general services. It is available on line at www.co.waushara.wi.us by clicking the “Help for You and Your Family” button or “Ayuda para usted y su familia” for Spanish
