COTS: More than Shelter

Thank you!



The Committee on Temporary Shelter (COTS) is the largest service provider for people who are homeless or at risk of becoming homeless in Vermont. COTS offers emergency shelter, prevention assistance, services, and transitional and permanent housing for those who are homeless and marginally housed.  We believe: in the value and dignity of every human life; that housing is a fundamental human right; and that emergency shelter is not the solution to homelessness.

The COTS Housing Resource Center, Daystationadministration and development are located at 95 North Avenue, Burlington.
