National Give Something Away Day

 

“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.

COTS Begins a New Chapter With a New Name.


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.

Happy Fourth of July!


“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.
