VOLUNTEER! Aug 13th Point in Time Street Count

VOLUNTEER! Aug 13th Point in Time Street Count

   PLEASE VOLUNTEER for the Semi-Annual

Point In Time Outreach Event!

A coalition of local agencies and volunteers will be conducting the Point In Time Street Count in Manitowoc, Door, Kewaunee, & Sheboygan Counties over the night of Thursday, August 13, 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. 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 hour shifts are available between 4AM – 6AM and 6PM – 8PM, Thursday, August 13

NOTE: We ask that you provide your own car due to COVID-19 precautions. We will require masks, frequent hand-washing and social distancing.

Training will be provided before the count

Volunteers must be at least 18 years old.

Be Part of the “No Wrong Door” Solution

Lakeshore CoCIn 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. Again, 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.


Donate Locally to Help the Homeless!

Lakeshore CAP’s Supportive Housing Program in Manitowoc, Sheboygan, Door & Kewaunee Counties has case managers who assist eligible homeless individuals and households — or those at risk of becoming homeless — maintain housing and work towards self-sufficiency. While we receive HUD grant monies, we also rely on private and fund-raiser donations to further our goals in the communities we serve. Please DONATE on this site to help Lakeshore CAP combat homelessness and give our fellow citizens a hand up. Thank you!

DOOR CO RENTAL ASSISTANCE FUND

DOOR CO RENTAL ASSISTANCE FUND

Door County Rental Assistance Program

To help keep struggling Door County residents from being evicted from their homes, the Door County Emergency Response Fund has partnered with Lakeshore CAP to offer an expanded Rental Assistance Program during the global pandemic and resulting recession.

You might be eligible for assistance if ALL the following criteria apply to you:

  • Lease an apartment, duplex, or single-family home in Door County as your sole residence
  • Experienced a substantial reduction in your income due to the COVID-19 health crisis and resulting economic recession
  • Virtually exhausted your savings and are now unable to meet your financial obligations

You will be asked to provide documentation to Lakeshore CAP, including proof of change in income, bank statements, and your lease. Lakeshore CAP will keep that information highly confidential. Your name will not be disclosed to any third party, nor to United Way or the Community Foundation. If you are approved for rental assistance, the check will be made payable directly to your landlord.

Unfortunately, we are not going to be able to meet all your financial needs. However, our hope is that we can help make things just a little bit easier for you during this crisis.The resources in the Door County Emergency Response Fund are limited and so we anticipate that the income and savings criteria used to determine eligibility will evolve as we have a better count of how many people will need help. Remember, the Emergency Response Fund does NOT receive any money from government. It is entirely funded by the generosity of your friends and neighbors of Door County.
