The Housing Action Coalition of Waukesha County is committed to building partnerships with social support providers, community stakeholders, and constituents to provide responsive solutions to meet the needs of vulnerable populations within the Waukesha community who are experiencing or at risk of experiencing homelessness. The Coalition has over 20 participating agencies and continues to grow. Each agency plays a specific role within the community which helps to stabilize some of the county's most vulnerable people, putting them on the path towards self-sufficiency.
The Executive Committee
The Executive Committee is comprised of members of the HAC – representing both funded and non-funded ETH grant recipients. The Committee is responsible for overseeing the subcommittees of the HAC; setting the agenda for Board meetings, ensuring that Board members and agency members are adhering to HAC bylaws, addressing and correcting personnel issues; and exercising executive powers as needed. The main purpose of the Executive Committee is to make sure that Coalition functions appropriately.
The Board of Directors
The Board of Directors is the managing team behind the Coalition. They are responsible for approving and monitoring the financial behavior of the Housing Action Coalition. Each director was chosen because of their personal integrity and professional strengths.
The Board members represent just about every aspect of the Waukesha community. The directors work in school systems (k12 and post-secondary), the health department, non-profit agencies, and faith communities; some members hold political office; some members are concerned citizens; and some are business owners. No matter their background, all of the Board Members are passionate about helping people experiencing housing vulnerability.
The Coalition is a collaborative network of local government agencies, businesses, and several non-profit social service providers throughout Waukesha County. Our member agencies are committed to helping the most vulnerable in our community receive the social and economic support that they need to gain their independence.
