Barrier Reduction Program

Transportation Program

85% of the individuals served in the Emergency Shelter Program rely on the bus system for transportation. To assist with resident transportation to job sites, we provide bus passes and/or a free bicycle whenever possible.  The bicycles are donated to us from members of our Green Bay community.  Once a resident secures an income, they are responsible for paying for purchasing their bus pass.

Barrier Reduction Program

If a resident secures employment but needs a particular item before they can begin working, their Case Manager can assist them through the Barrier Reduction Program. Items that are typically purchased are steel toe boots, slip resistant shoes, safety goggles, or clothing that is a specific color (such as black pants).  Without these items, the resident would not have been able to begin working.

Phone Use and Voicemail

Residents of both programs have access to a resident use phone to make local phone calls and a personal voicemail box. The New Community Shelter partners with Cellcom to provide the voicemail boxes.  They are not associated with the shelter so employers or others will not know the individual is staying at the shelter.

Clothing & Haircuts

The New Community Shelter partners with local organizations to provide vouchers to residents so they can obtain clothing and haircuts. This allows the individual to have the appropriate clothing for both interviews and employment.
