A coalition of local agencies and volunteers will be conducting the Point In Time Homeless Count in Manitowoc, Door, Kewaunee, & Sheboygan Counties over the night ofWednesday, January 22, 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. Services needed to help the homeless in our communities are a result of identifying those households. The information gathered is used at the state and federal levels to allocate resources for individuals and households requiring homelessness assistance.
SIGN UP HERE!
2-3 hour shifts are available between 11 PM, Wednesday, January 22nd and 6 AM, Thursday, January 23rd.

Be Part of the “No Wrong Door” Solution
In 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. 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.
