Committee on the Shelterless
November 2, 2010
I have been a volunteer for COTS in several capacities over the last 6 years. I stick around because it is always apparent to me that COTS is a well-run and effective organization. My time is put to good use and I always feel appreciated. There are many ways to help and it allows me to take action to help people rather than just write a check, though I am happy doing that too.
I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...
I have been a landlord to COTS graduates for almost 2 years and have been very happy with how well they take care of the house and yard; they have been excellent tenants thanks, in part, to what they learned in COTS Rent Right Program and ongoing support from COTS staff.
Ways to make it better...
If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...
expand the shelter and add more transitional housing
Volunteer & Mentored people to help them become good tenants. Helped people in their job search and writing resumes. worked with COTS staff to become a landlord to COTS graduates.
