Volunteering Opportunity for the Semi-Annual

Point In Time Outreach Event!

A coalition of local agencies and volunteers will be conducting the Winter 2023 Point In Time Street Count in Manitowoc County over the night of January 25-26th, 2023. The focus of the count is to identify people who might be residing on the streets, in cars, on campgrounds, under bridges, or in similar places. Please let us know prior to the Count If you are aware of locations in the community where homeless people are sheltering. Services needed to help the homeless in our communities are a result of identifying these households. The information gathered is used at the state and federal levels to allocate resources for individuals and households requiring homelessness assistance. (See FAQ below.)

2 shifts are available between 11 PM-1 AM and 4 AM-6 AM on January 25-26th

Training will be provided before the count on Monday, January 3rd at 8:30-9:30 AM at United Way of Manitowoc County

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.

Mental Illness Awareness Week

Mental Illness Awareness Week

This week is Mental Illness Awareness Week and October 10th is World Mental Health Day and this year’s theme is: Mental health care for all: let’s make it a reality! The pandemic has created new challenges for maintaining mental wellness and ongoing shortages in the behavioral health workforce make it difficult to meet the ongoing and increased need for mental health care. As we strive to make mental wellness and mental health care a reality for all, we can continue to support our traditional mental health care providers and highlight professionals not often included in workforce projections but who play important roles in the mental well-being of individuals, schools, and communities. We can all play a role in making mental health a reality for all. Information provided by Mental Health Technology Transfer Center Network.
Jak’s Place, located in Sturgeon Bay, is here to provide structured and social resources to those affected by mental illness and to family members in need of support and information.
