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.
Las siguientes agencias participan en el área del Lakeshore (Condados de Sheboygan, Manitowoc, Door and Kewaunee): Lakeshore CAP, El Ejercito de Salvation de Sheboygan, Incourage, The Haven del condado de Manitowoc y Hope House del condado de Manitowoc.

Join us for our first ever Virtual Cardboard City!
November 1st to November 14th
Join us for this year’s Cardboard City event, a fundraiser for Habitat for Humanity, The Haven, and Hope House. All 3 agencies are working to help the homeless in our community.
Cardboard City is a homeless experience where individuals, families or groups will spend the night in cardboard boxes, simple tents, or in their own car to experience what many homeless families and individuals go through. A simple meal will be served for dinner and there will be activities, entertainment and presentations throughout the evening.
If you are interested in attending this event please contact Stephanie at firstname.lastname@example.org!
Missed the deadline to sign up to participate? Fear not! You still can! Participants still have the opportunity to participate and help raise money toward homelessness as Hope House, Habitat for Humanity, and The Haven partner together to help our community.
Prizes will be awarded to the team or individual with the most money raised and the best cardboard shelter.
Even if you can’t participate this year, give us a share so we can keep fighting this fight together and bring awareness. You can share — and sign up — by clicking on this Facebook page:
