Family swims set at PHS

Children must be accompanied by an adult, and participants should bring their own towels. One lap lane will be available.

Transitional living apps available

The Salvation Army of Sheboygan’s Transitional Living Program is taking applications to start a waiting list for potentially eligible clients for money that may be awarded in April for the 2014/2015 grant cycle year.

In 2007 the Salvation Army’s social service department started the Transitional Living Program (TLP) based on the Housing First model. TLP helps clients gain stability in the community, and establish their own permanent housing.

The desire is to move forward with TLP as a natural outgrowth to the Emergency Lodge and Housing Assistance Programs.

In order to be eligible for this program, potential clients must be single adult residents of Sheboygan County with an income at or below 30 percent of the Sheboygan County median income. ($1,228 monthly gross income) Potential clients must have documented mental health or AODA issues and be homeless or at risk of becoming homeless.

While in TLP, clients will be given rental assistance for up to 12 months. Clients will be assigned a case manager that will conduct home visits and individual case management. Clients will also be helped with education and/or training based on their needs and given referrals to other community resources. Clients in the program are also eligible for transportation assistance as well as life skills development classes.

Potential clients may call or come to The Salvation Army’s during office hours and begin the application process. The office is open Monday-Friday 8:30 a.m.-12 noon and 1 p.m.-4:30 p.m. An application can also be mailed upon request by calling TLP Case manager Abby Dahmer at (920) 458-3723.

Literacy Council names coordinators

Two new leaders have been selected as co-coordinators of the Sheboygan County Literacy Council. Carol Dussault will work with volunteer tutors and students, while Carol Myers will focus on data collection, grant writing, and marketing.

The Literacy Council helps adults who have low literacy skills. Dedicated, trained tutors work one-on-one with students at the student’s pace and help them learn anything from how to read a book to their child, balance a checkbook, learn basic computer or math skills, speak English, and even prepare to take a GED test. The tutor services are free to the student. The goal is to help improve lives through literacy.

The Literacy Council, a nonprofit organization under the auspices of the Family Resource Center of Sheboygan County, is seeking additional students and tutors at this time. Other ways to help include encouraging people to contact us who could use our services, supporting us with a tax-deductible donation, and assisting in fund development.

For more information about the Literacy Council or to volunteer, call 920-892-6706 or email Carol Dussault at cdussault@frc-sc.org.
