“No one has ever become poor by giving.” - Anne Frank
July 15th is National Give Something Away Day! There are several action points you can take on this day. SHARE Detroit’s four pillars of giving are: donating money, volunteering time, attending an event, and shopping for items from nonprofit wish lists.
Starting July 1, 2022, we're beginning a new chapter with a brand new name. No longer will we be known as the Coalition On Temporary Shelter. We're now officially: COTS.
We've come a long way from our 1982 start as a coalition of parties focused mainly on homeless single men. COTS is now an independent organization that supports families seeking housing stability, whole-spectrum health, career development and so much more through our Passport To Self-Sufficiency™ framework.
“We must be free not because we claim freedom, but because we practice it.” — William Faulkner
As we gather for this long weekend to celebrate the anniversary of our nation’s independence, let us use this time to reflect on what America means to ourselves and what it could mean for others. Need does not get a vacation so just as we want to gather and enjoy the company of our friends and family, it is important to remember those who may have a more complicated relationship to Independence Day or are otherwise requiring help this holiday.
SHARE Detroit kicked off a summer of giving with our event at Jimmy John’s Field on June11th. Nonprofit partners, sponsors, and community members came together to enjoy a BBQ meal and watch the Utica Unicorns prevail over the Birmingham Bloomfield Beavers from the stadium’s patio.
Help SHARE Detroit kick off their Summer SHARE campaign with a family evening of exciting baseball and delicious food – all for a great cause!
Join us for an evening of great baseball and community spirit for the whole family at Jimmy John’s Field, to raise money and awareness for our nonprofit partners. This summer, SHARE Detroit is stepping up to the plate to connect metro Detroiters with hundreds of great nonprofits that need your help.
In 1982, a coalition of partners came together to offer Detroiters in need of immediate shelter the support they needed. 40 years later, COTS has innovated an approach to lift families out of the cycle of poverty and become healthier and more stable.
The Certified Fund Raising Executives, is an independent organization promoting ethics and professionalism in fundraising, confirmed Aisha Morrell-Ferguson, COTS’ Chief Development Officer, as one of only 180 this year and 7700 worldwide to receive their CFRE designation.
