What Is Poverty?

United Way and students from the Social Entrepreneurship Program at

The College of Wooster partner to define poverty locally.

The students, in consultation with multiple stakeholders, affirmed that poverty is multi-dimensional.

It cannot be defined by income alone. They helped researched measures of poverty and illustrated 

how such a measure could be understood by looking at the story of an individual that receives our support. 

They completed a business plan that includes risk assessment and feasibility.
