Wisconsin Community Response

The Wisconsin Community Response Program (CRP) at Lakeshore CAP works with families in Manitowoc County and Sheboygan County who need a little extra support in caring for their children. The overall goal is to strengthen families, prevent child abuse and neglect, and reduce
re-referrals to Child Protective Services.

CRP is a short-term (20 week maximum) voluntary prevention program designed to work with families by helping them find the community resources, services, support and opportunities that will address each family’s identified needs and goals.

Following a referral to this program from either Manitowoc County Human Services or Sheboygan County Human Services, the CRP worker will contact each family to arrange an in-home visit. During this home visit, each family will determine if Community Response is a good fit for them. Upon enrollment, on-going visits will occur. The family and the Case Worker will work together closely to:

  • Identify and build family strengths
  • Identify family concerns
  • Identify sources of support
  • Develop a family plan for both parent(s) and child(ren)
