Opportunity to Serve on the Lakeshore CoC Steering Committee
The Lakeshore CoC (Continuum of Care) Program is designed to promote a community wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness. Lakeshore CAP is seeking individuals and agencies to participate on a committee to help steer and direct funding for those who are homeless in our service area of Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, and Sheboygan counties.
Continuum of Care is a Planning Process
The goal is to understand the size and scope of the problem of homelessness in a community and design effective strategies and solutions to address it. To carry out the purpose of the Lakeshore CoC Steering Committee of the WIBOSCOC (Wisconsin Balance of State Continuum of Care) Program, HUD requires representatives of relevant organizations (e.g., nonprofit organizations, victim services providers, local governments) to form a Continuum of Care to serve a certain geographic area. Specifically, we would like participation from:
- Current or former homeless individual
- Local government officials
- CDBG entitlement staff
- Affordable housing developers
- Local hospitals
- Interested community members
