Homeless? Let Us Help!

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.

FEDERAL EVICTION MORATORIUM

The CDC has issued a federal eviction moratorium in effect starting 9/4/2020 until 12/31/2020.

Click on this link: Here’s what the CDC’s nationwide eviction ban means for renters.

You are still responsible to pay your rent and you must provide your landlord a declaration indicating that you cannot pay.

You should pay as much on your rent as you can each month because you will owe ALL of it at the end of the moratorium. A copy of the declaration should be posted online soon for tenants to download and sign. 
Residents of Manitowoc, Door, Kewaunee and Sheboygan counties may apply for rental assistance by clicking on one of the applications on Lakeshore CAP’s homepage at https://lakeshorecap.org/. The WRAP application is for anyone who has lost income due to COVID-19.
