“Character cannot be developed in ease and quiet. Only through experience of trial and suffering can the soul be strengthened, ambition inspired, and success achieved.”   Helen Keller

Manitowoc Addiction Recovery 

Providing a LIGHT OF HOPE through the darkness of addiction

The public is ready for a different story to go along with substance abuse and addiction. The focus is often put on the addiction side of the story; but there is another side of the story. It’s about recovery!  Everyone is affected by addiction in some form or another so we’ve set out to address this situation.

Because treatment is not always available to those struggling with Substance Use Disorder, the Lighthouse Recovery Community Center provides a safe and social space to those seeking recovery from addiction. The center is using one of the most successful means to recovery — peer-to-peer support with a coach on staff to help members work on their recovery plan. Telling our story and sharing our experience, strength, and hope is how we learn to live and watch others do the same.

Sign-up has Started!

  • Where: The Salvation Army — by phone 920-684-7117
  • When: September 14th to October 16th — 9 AM- 3 PM
  • Sign up will be done by phone this year
  • Emails will be needed to finalize the sign-up process

Coat Distribution will begin October 24th
*Must be pre-registered*

It is best to sign up early. First come clients and new clients receive consideration for “adoption”. Note that you may not be adopted two years in a row.

New families will need to provide proof of address, proof of household income (must meet poverty guidelines) and proof that your children live with you. If you receive FoodShare, that current document works. Preferably via email or fax.

Clients who have participated in one or both of these programs before will need to initially call and register. They will then receive an email with the wish list attached and asked to fill it out (with detailed info) and return via email. Once we receive the wish list, they will receive a final email with the dates and times for their appointments to pick up coats and toys.

YOU MUST PRE-REGISTER DURING THE DATES/TIMES LISTED! YOU WILL BE GIVEN A TIME TO COME FOR COATS & TOYS WHEN YOU REGISTER

We realize that this could be cumbersome for some families. We also believe with the way so much of life has been happening the last many months that it should be a process  most families can follow.


Requirements

Please have a photo ID, proof of address, proof that your children live with you, and proof of household income (must be below TEFAP/poverty guidelines shown here: https://www.dhs.wisconsin.gov/nutrition/tefap/eligibility.htm)  If you receive Foodshare, please bring that current document.
