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.
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.

Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) is celebrating our independence of becoming our own non-profit organization in the Manitowoc community under the non-profit name of CASA of East Central Wisconsin. CASA serves children that have been adjudicated to be in need of protection and services due to abuse and or neglect by a parent and or caregiver.
Manitowoc County CASA Program had been operating under Lakeshore Community Action Program since the program originated in 2006. In order to grow to serve the many children on our waiting list, it became time to become an independent organization! We recruit, screen, and train everyday citizens from our community to be the voice of abused and neglected children in the courtroom, seeking to ensure them a safe and permanent home.
Currently we have our office in the Beacon Organizational Consulting Building at 812 Washington Street.
