COTS is an exceptional organization is that it provides much more than food and shelter to homeless singles and families. COTS addresses each program participant with loving kindness and services to support practical, emotional and social well-being. Each person is seen as a unique human being capable of moving beyond trauma to the highest expression of who they are. Each person who comes into the program is met with a caring staff person who creates an environment that promotes growth and sobriety. Multiple programs foster personal insight and achievement.

The Great!

I see former program participants in their own homes, parenting their children, going to school and working in jobs that can provide financial security and ultimately independence.

In 2004, I sought out the E.D. of COTS to learn more about this unique comprehensive homeless service organization and completed an administrative internship at COTS in 2005. Since that time, I've continued to learn about COTS' integrative programming and approach and have provided some consultation on Motivational Strategies to front-line staff as needed. Through the State University of New York at Albany School of Social Welfare, I am working with COTS on a project looking at the Prevalence of Adverse Childhood Experiences (ACE) Among Homeless People. Recently, I interviewed many COTS staff persons and wrote an article about COTS programming. COTS is an award-winning homeless service organization, and I am interested in articulating their approach in support of replication and evaluation.
