What is the Hispanic Coalition?
In October 2003, Waushara County UW Extension conducted three Focus Groups with Hispanic members of the community. Results of these focus groups were compiled into a report (Hispanic/Latino Focus Group), which was distributed to individuals from more than 30 different organizations and is available on this web site.
In an effort to begin to address some of the needs and issues of this population, the Hispanic Coalition was formed along with its two current committees: Housing and Culture.
