Lakeshore CAP is Celebrating Our Mission in May “Community Action Month”

We are here to identify local needs and find solutions to issues that affect low-income persons. Thank you, Governor Evers for recognizing the work we do to improve the lives of our neighbors. See the State of Wisconsin Office of the Governor Proclamation at: Wisconsin Community Action Month See a list below of Lakeshore Community Action Program’s current programming to assist eligible households in our Wisconsin service area of Manitowoc, Sheboygan, Door and Kewaunee counties.

The need for Community Action has never been greater. Neither has our resolve. We’re challenged to create solutions that don’t just help people stay afloat but build lives of stability, dignity, and, whenever possible, prosperity. And we will rise to that challenge. Community Action changes people’s lives, embodies the spirit of hope, improves communities, and makes America a better place to live.

Whether our neighbors are experiencing a temporary set back or have been priced out
of affordable housing – too many struggle to achieve a good quality of life. Despite
America’s economic recovery, nearly 40 million of us are still living in poverty and even more are just one missed paycheck away from hardship. We believe everyone should be
able to take care of their families and have an equal opportunity at success. The nation’s Community Action network – including 1,000 plus Community Action Agencies – are
a robust, national, state, and local force, reaching children and families in 99% of America’s
counties with life changing services that create pathways to opportunity and prosperity.
