For over 25 years, COTS — the Committee on Temporary Shelter — has been providing emergency shelter, services, and housing for people who are without homes or who are marginally housed. COTS advocates for long-term solutions to end homelessness.

COTS believes:

  • in the value and dignity of every human life.
  • that housing is a fundamental human right.
  • that emergency shelter is not the solution to homelessness.
