We understand that circumstances may be frightening and challenging but we are glad you’ve looked to COTS for assistance. COTS is a provider of housing assistance and shelter for families facing or experiencing homelessness and we are here to offer hope, help, and housing by way of information, resources and programs designed to aid families in overcoming homelessness.
The first step in getting help is to connect with CAM – the Coordinated Assessment Model under which COTS and all shelters in Detroit operate.
