VOLUNTEER! Aug 13th Point in Time Street Count

VOLUNTEER! Aug 13th Point in Time Street Count

   PLEASE VOLUNTEER for the Semi-Annual

Point In Time Outreach Event!

A coalition of local agencies and volunteers will be conducting the Point In Time Street Count in Manitowoc, Door, Kewaunee, & Sheboygan Counties over the night of Thursday, August 13, 2020. The focus of the count is to identify people who might be residing on the streets, in cars, campgrounds, under bridges or 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 hour shifts are available between 4AM – 6AM and 6PM – 8PM, Thursday, August 13

NOTE: We ask that you provide your own car due to COVID-19 precautions. We will require masks, frequent hand-washing and social distancing.

Training will be provided before the count

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.

Be Part of the “No Wrong Door” Solution

Lakeshore CoCIn addition, we are requesting assistance from the community to help us identify locations where suspected homeless people may be staying. If your business is aware of people that do not have shelter or you are a concerned citizen who might have spotted someone you suspect is homeless, please contact us. We can offer assistance and referrals for shelter. Again, please let us know prior to the Count If you are aware of locations in the community (parked car, parks, etc.) where people are staying so we can find these vulnerable people and offer them services.

People experiencing or at risk of homelessness may find housing and get connected to community-based resources through Coordinated Entry. In most counties in Wisconsin, you can get help at agencies that assist homeless people and/or people in poverty. Lakeshore CAP, covering 4 counties, is among those agencies displaying the “No Wrong Door” welcome poster.

Donate Locally to Help the Homeless!

Lakeshore CAP’s Supportive Housing Program in Manitowoc, Sheboygan, Door & Kewaunee Counties has case managers who assist eligible homeless individuals and households — or those at risk of becoming homeless — maintain housing and work towards self-sufficiency. While we receive HUD grant monies, we also rely on private and fund-raiser donations to further our goals in the communities we serve. Please DONATE on this site to help Lakeshore CAP combat homelessness and give our fellow citizens a hand up. Thank you!

Sheboygan Cares Drive-Thru Food Pantry

Sheboygan Cares Drive-Thru Food Pantry


We care about our community. In response to the health crisis, Sheboygan County Food Bank launched a drive-thru food pantry to distribute fresh food items as well as non-perishable food and personal care items directly to our neighbors.

Sheboygan Cares Drive-Thru Food Pantry is located at Glacier Transit Storage (GTS), Building C, 4910 Frontage Road in Sheboygan. GTS has graciously allowed us to store pallets of boxes in their warehouse and hand out boxes in their parking lot. This new pantry serves families who were previously served at school meal sites and anyone else in need of emergency food (no registration required) and is open Mondays and Fridays, 10 AM – 12 PM. To receive the boxes, clients drive up to the southside of GTS’s warehouse at Building C where volunteers with masks and gloves safely place the boxes in the trunks of clients’ vehicles. The types of fresh products within the the Farmers to Families Food Boxes may vary each week.

CAP – Black Lives Matter

CAP – Black Lives Matter


Black lives and racial equality matter. The “Community Action Program” was born of the War on Poverty and is, therefore, linked to the civil rights movement. As great social and economic unrest consumes our state and nation, we must renew and deepen our commitment to racial and ethnic equality. We must recognize our common humanity and kinship with all people. Lakeshore CAP stands together with all who work daily toward a more just culture of racial equity and economic opportunity.
