New and Exciting at “The Bridge” WIRCO Recovery Community Center

We are pleased to announce the naming of our new Recovery Community Center, now known as The Bridge! There has been much growth since we opened and we continue to expand our programs. Starting in August, we will offer a Mindfulness Meditation group on Tuesdays from 10-11am. On Wednesdays, we will offer Alateen from 3-4pm. The Mindfulness Meditation program is for anyone interested in learning more about mindfulness and how to use meditation in this time of chaos to ground yourself and bring awareness to the present moment. Our Alateen group is designed to help young people affected by another person’s use of alcohol or drugs and will be a great resource for adolescents. We are also working on our first major fundraiser for The Bridge called 24 Hours of Recovery. It features live speakers every hour for 24 hours for September – National Recovery Month.  Watch for more news on this fun and exciting event soon!

Meetings Continue

We continue to host meetings at The Bridge (masks are required, and we can supply them if needed) and will continue to support the recovery community. Please check out our website “wirco.org” or our Facebook page “WIRCO Sheboygan” https://www.facebook.com/wircos/ for our calendar and more!

Thank you for your continued support to our mission: WIRCO seeks to establish and sustain a Recovery Community Organization and Center that embraces all pathways to recovery and support all individuals impacted by the disease of addiction through education and coaching, programming, referrals, and advocacy.

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!
