Resources for homeless described at breakfast

The agencies of the Sheboygan County Housing Coalition working with the homeless and potentially homeless community members announce the semi-annual Point in Time homeless count in Sheboygan County.

The focus of this nationwide count is to identify the homeless in our community and nationwide. All communities which receive housing funding from HUD participate in this nationwide event.

This activity is an opportunity for those who are homeless or worried about homelessness to identify service providers in our community who can help.

On Wednesday, July 27 between 11 p.m. and 2 a.m. the staff from The Housing Coalition agencies and community volunteers will be canvasing the community to gather information and offer assistance to those needing help with homelessness.

Training will be provided Wednesday, July 27 at 10 p.m. at Lakeshore Cap. We are looking for volunteers who are 18 years or older with transportation. If you would like to volunteer call Ruth Orozco at (920) 803-6991 or (920)-694-0041.

Thursday, July 28 from 9 a.m.-11 a.m. at the Rocca Room at the Mead Public Library, a breakfast will be hosted where anyone concerned about their housing status or worried about where they are going to sleep can drop by and talk about resources in the community. All are welcome.

The Sheboygan Housing Coalition is a group of twelve local service agencies as well as a number of concerned community members and business associations making an effort to strengthen the effectiveness of service delivery to meet the needs of households experiencing homelessness or at imminent risk of becoming homeless.

Safe Harbor’s facility is the only domestic violence shelter in Sheboygan County. Women and their minor children who stay at the shelter are provided with room and board as well as personal needs. Men may also receive services and are placed in alternative safe place shelters.

In addition to the 24/7 crisis line and shelter Safe Harbor offers: abuse assessments, crisis counseling, assistance in obtaining restraining orders, legal referrals, court accompaniment, support groups, advocacy, emergency transportation assistance, financial assistance, child care, and information and referral services.

All services are available, at no cost, to anyone who is a victim of domestic violence or sexual assault. A person is not required to come to the shelter or stay at the shelter in order to receive assistance.
