Many years ago, i worked at COTS in the child-care program. It provided a standard that i tend to hold all other non-profits to. They had a comprehensive approach to children and their families that is hard to match. Northern Cal. is fortunate to have this resource so handy.

I have not only seen and been impressed with the actual operations of COTS, but I've personally known people who have been residents of their shelters and have heard first hand from them about how awesome this organization is. What's special about COTS is that they do far more than give out fish, they teach people to fish. They help to educate, support and encourage people so when they leave this shelter, they have a better chance for success at leaving homelessness forever.

...amazing! No doubt they truly have a heart for what they do and are passionate about the people they are helping.

Petaluma is very fortunate to have COTS - Committee on the Shelterless in our community. My family and I have been volunteers for many years and helped raise money and awareness. From the adults to the children that are encouraged, comforted, and given hope, I am proud to be a part of this organization as a volunteer and donor. Individuals are given an opportunity to succeed and build a future for themselves. Thank you to John Records and his staff and board for the contributions to our community. I am currently involved in developing a template COTS transitional education home in Petaluma for 8 single adults. This is the year long signature community project for AAUW which I am a board member of.

Put a lot of good people back on their feet and with successful futures.

An organization that embraces integrity to a level far and above. Everyone who comes in contact with COTS knows that their commitment to quality service is best served by well working systems both inside and out of the organization. Every aspect of COTS is a class act. They are THE model I point to when talking to others involved in direct service work!
