Coalition on Temporary Shelter

The Coalition On Temporary Shelter (COTS) was founded in 1981 to address Detroit’s growing crisis of homelessness. Through case management and a wide array of supportive services and housing programs, COTS helps homeless individuals and families break the cycle of homelessness by addressing the causes of their homelessness. Annually we serve approximately 2,000 Detroit area homeless people in our Emergency Shelter and approximately 260 individuals and families in our transitional and permanent housing programs. COTS advocates for long-term solutions to the problem of homelessness. COTS also provides food for the homeless through its Soup City program.
