Lakeshore Community Action Program has never found a homeless person during their semiannual Point-In-Time Street Count, but that only makes their work even more important. July 25 marks the second time this year Lakeshore CAP will conduct the search through Door, Kewaunee, Manitowoc, and Sheboygan counties as they hope to find people in need of help. Lakeshore CAP Supportive Housing Supervisor Kate Markwardt says the data they are able to collect could go a long way to helping communities dealing with homelessness.
Markwardt cites low volunteer turnout for possibly leading to homeless people not being found during their counts. You can learn more about how you can volunteer with the count, which will take place during the overnight hours of July 25 and July 26, online with this story.
