The Wisconsin Balance of State Continuum of Care (WIBOSCOC) is a 501(c)3 non-profit organization serving all the counties in Wisconsin except Dane, Milwaukee, and Racine. Our membership is comprised of agencies who serve, support and care about those experiencing homelessness.
As a WIBOSCOC member, Lakeshore CAP needs your feedback! We are looking for 25 surveys from area providers and surveys from at least 25 clients. The deadline is November 15th.
If you have applied for or received services through Lakeshore CAP or another provider, please:
⇒Take the Gaps and Needs Survey here: Client Survey
If you are an agency in our service area (Manitowoc, Sheboygan, Door and Kewaunee counties) that works with the homeless population, please:
⇒Take the Gap and Needs Survey here: Provider Survey
The gaps and needs group’s purpose is to research and identify the gaps in services and the needs of the Balance of State’s serving populations and agencies. This group will be able to compile data and provide supportive evidence for identifying these gaps and needs. This group will also be a vital advocate and voice for the populations and service providers within the Balance of State.
Join us for a Free Continental Breakfast after the Sheboygan Point in Time Count. Come and talk about your needs or struggles in finding and maintaining housing. See flyer for details!

2020 LAKESHORE CAP 0.5K “RACE!”
Watch HERE for news on the 2020 “Race for the Rest of Us,” a fun run to benefit Lakeshore CAP’s programs throughout our communities!
ABOUT THE, UM, RACE
This, um, race may be the most grueling of your life. This tongue-in-cheek event is geared to the classic underachiever, who wants to participate in an, um, athletic competition and train for it by sleeping in late, eating donuts and drinking beer. We’ll celebrate ALL abilities and underachievers − and you’ll have bragging rights for participating in the punishing 546.8 yard/1640 feet event! PLUS, you’ll be raising money for a local cause!
Sponsor or Have Fun Volunteering at this Event!
We ARE accepting sponsors for the 2020 Lakeshore CAP 0.5k Race — AND fun volunteers for food, rest stops and cheerleading! Please contact Kate or Colleen at 920-682-3737.

Opportunity to Serve on the Lakeshore CoC Steering Committee
Lakeshore CAP is seeking individuals and agencies to help steer and direct funding for those who are homeless in our service area of Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, and Sheboygan counties. Currently, there are approximately 60 homeless households waiting for Lakeshore CAP’s housing programs in these areas. The Lakeshore CoC (Continuum of Care) Program is designed to promote a community-wide commitment to the goal of ending homelessness.
Continuum of Care is a Planning Process
The goal is to understand the size and scope of the problem of homelessness in a community and design effective strategies and solutions to address it. To carry out the purpose of the CoC Program, HUD requires representatives of relevant organizations (e.g., nonprofit organizations, victim services providers, local governments) to form a Continuum of Care to serve a certain geographic area. Specifically, we would like participation from:
- A current or former homeless individual
- Local government officials
- Law enforcement
- CDBG entitlement staff
- Affordable housing developers
- Local hospitals
- Interested community members
PLEASE JOIN US!
Lakeshore CoC Quarterly Meetings
The Lakeshore CoC will meet on a quarterly basis during the months of March, June, September, & December. All members share a common purpose to provide quality services in an effort to end homelessness!
If you are interested or have questions, please call Kate Markwardt, Lakeshore CAP, 920.682.3737
