COTS creates opportunities for families to collaborate, thrive, and succeed in building strong and stable households, neighborhoods, and communities.


Through partnerships, we are able to assist families in reaching their housing, economic, health, education and career goals as they overcome homelessness and break the cycle of poverty for the next generation and beyond.

Here is what your generous support in 2021 made possible:

COTS recognizes the history of racism and deep structural inequalities that persist and contribute to generational poverty in Detroit. We are committed to overcoming these oppressions to create a more just and inclusive world where all families can thrive. COTS embraces our responsibility to create a diverse, accessible, equitable, and anti-racist organization through reflection, ongoing learning, community advocacy, and transformative action.
