COTS is a significant provider of housing in the metropolitan Detroit area and one of the largest providers of housing to homeless families in the City of Detroit. Its emergency shelter provides a safe place for families to stay, three hot nutritious meals per day, toiletries, clothing, bedding and pillows. In addition, COTS also provides Permanent Supportive Housing (PSH) to individuals and families who are homeless and who have a special need or disability such as mental illness, chronic substance abuse, chronic health or physical disability, as well as survivors of domestic violence.
COTS assist families in reaching their housing, economic, health, education, and career goals as they strive to overcome homelessness and break the cycle of poverty for themselves, the next generation, and beyond.
COTS was established in 1982 to serve the most vulnerable members of the Detroit community. Starting initially with an emergency shelter to address Detroit's growing homelessness crisis, COTS today offers a wide continuum of services ranging from emergency shelter to permanent housing. All programs are designed to meet the agency's mission of alleviating homelessness by providing an array of services that enable people to achieve self-sufficiency and obtain quality affordable housing.
