Connections Count

Are you the parent or caregiver of a child between the ages of 0 and 5 years old who needs some extra support in accessing resources?

The Connections Count Program at Lakeshore CAP works with families in Manitowoc County who are expecting and/or caring for at least one child under the age of 5. This 20-week program is designed to work with families by helping them find the community resources, services, supports and opportunities that will address each family’s identified needs and goals.

The 3-step program includes:

  • Accessing your strengths and needs
  • Developing your family goal plan
  • Providing information, community resources and supports

Following a community partner referral or self-referral to the program, a Community Connector will meet with each family to determine if the program is a good fit. The Connector works closely with you during this process to identify your strengths and needs and develop a goal plan. We also provide information, resources and support unique to your family’s concerns.
