Detroit Homeless Shelter
On any given night, there are more than 14,000 homeless in Detroit;
one-third of these are children.
For nearly 35 years, COTS has served the most vulnerable in our community.
COTS’ Emergency Shelter operates at capacity throughout the year, offering programs and providing services for more than 900 men, women and children daily.
COTS is one of the largest providers of housing to homeless families in the City of Detroit — sheltering more than 100 homeless children nightly. COTS provides emergency shelter for families, supportive services, mobility coaching through our Passport to Self-Sufficiency™, child care, long-term housing and safe transitional housing for families.
COTS’ Passport to Self-Sufficiency™ assists families in reaching their housing, economic, health,
education, and career goals through coaching, mentorship, and support as they strive to overcome homelessness and break the cycle of poverty for the next generation and beyond.
