// MISSION

The Coalition On Temporary Shelter (COTS) exists to alleviate homelessness by providing services that enable people to achieve self-sufficiency and obtain quality affordable housing. COTS also exists to advocate for long-term solutions to the problem of homelessness.


// KEY SERVICES PROVIDED

For 35 years, COTS has served the most vulnerable members of the Detroit community. With a rich continuum of programs and services that empower people, COTS is continually committed to creating opportunities to succeed. Programs include a family-only emergency shelter; specialized transitional housing for victims of domestic violence; long-term supportive housing with assistance for addiction, disability, or illness; and child care for homeless infants and toddlers at Bright Beginnings. COTS provides housing and support to more than 800 people daily, but it offers more than beds — it offers hope. COTS’ Passport to Self-Sufficiency™ assists families in reaching their housing, economic, health, education, and career goals through coaching, mentorship, and support as they overcome homelessness and break the poverty cycle for the next generation and beyond.
