NO WRONG DOOR
During the week before Thanksgiving, known as Hunger and Homelessness Awareness week, you might notice signs around your community connected to the hashtags on this post. These signs were distributed by Lakeshore CAP regarding our Supportive Housing Program.
Within the program, a process called Coordinated Entry is used in an effort to refer those seeking housing assistance to the most appropriate services available. The flyer gives a brief explanation regarding Coordinated Entry and which agencies participate. Any agency that displays the No Wrong Door image is an agency that someone seeking a referral to Coordinated Entry system can go to for that referral. In addition, passionate community members are encouraged to contact any of these agencies for volunteer and community support opportunities.
The following agencies on the Lakeshore (Sheboygan, Manitowoc, Door, and Kewaunee Counties) participate: Lakeshore CAP, The Salvation Army of Sheboygan, Incourage, The Haven of Manitowoc County, and Hope House of Manitowoc County.
Ninguna Puerta es Incorrectaå
Durante la semana antes del día de Acción de Gracias, es conocida como la semana para despertar conciencia sobre el Hambre y la Indigencia, usted podrá notar algunos posters en la comunidad conectados a estos hashtags en este post. Estos posters fueron distribuidos por Lakeshore CAP en relación con nuestro programa de apoyo a la vivienda.
Dentro del programa, hay un proceso llamado Coordinated Entry en un esfuerzo para referir a quienes buscan asistencia con la vivienda y referirlos a los servicios disponibles que sean más apropiados.
El volante adjunto da una breve explicación en cuanto a Coordinated Entry y cuáles agencias participan. Cualquier agencia que exhiba la imagen de abajo de Ninguna Puerta es Incorrecta, es una agencia a la que alguien puede ir para que se le haga el referimiento a sistema de Coordinated Entry. Además, cualquier miembro de la comunidad que esté interesado, puede contactar a cualquiera de estas agencias para servir como voluntario y para conocer diferentes modos en los que puede proveer apoyo.

Lakeshore CAP Joins Door County Affordable Workforce Housing Initiative
Across this country affordable housing is an issue for many. Lakeshore CAP is honored to be part of a group working towards solutions in Door County. Colleen Homb*, Executive Director at Lakeshore CAP, join others on a design team that will work together during a three-phase, six-month process to develop innovative solutions for affordable housing.
From the Door Co Pulse:
“Door County has been selected as one of three pilot communities in the state to take part in the Wisconsin Housing and Economic Development Authority’s (WHEDA) new Rural Affordable Workforce Housing Initiative. The initiative attempts to address the state’s shortage of rural affordable workforce housing through the pilot communities, coupled with new financing tools for home buyers and developers in rural areas.”
“WHEDA’s $10 million rural affordable workforce housing initiative, including the community pilot program and supplemental financing tools, are funded by WHEDA operations, and no state tax dollars are involved.”
*Colleen Homb has worked at Lakeshore CAP since 2005 — as the youth mentoring program coordinator, community services team leader, family development director, interim director and has been it’s executive director since Feb 2019.
