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.

ABOUT US: Lakeshore Community Action Program (Lakeshore CAP) promotes individual self-sufficiency. The Food Pantry in Sturgeon Bay is a non-sectarian, not-for-profit organization that provides on-going and emergency food assistance to low and limited income residents of Door County. The pantry is supported by local donations, food drives and the USDA food program (TEFAP). We are a client choice pantry. We respect likes/dislikes and medical circumstances of our clients. NO ONE is turned away the first time they come to the Door County pantry. If they are a non-resident, we will give the client information with their food as to the closest pantry to their home for their next visit. We also provide referral information to other programs that might be of help, both within the Lakeshore CAP agency and other community agencies.
