Poverty is one of the major problems in Poland. According to the statutory border of poverty, there are about 7,3% people who are poor (Poverty in Poland 2010). It is not surprising then that many researchers are preoccupied with this problem. Today, a lot of quantitative research is conducted by institutions like OBOP and GUS (J. Bielec 2007;. Baczewski 2008; Deniszczuk 2007). Also, qualitative studies are carried out (Tarkowska, 2000; Warzywoda-Kruszyńska 2001; Golczyńska-Grondas 2004; Nalaskowski -2007; Zabielska 2007).
