COTS, Inc., “Community Outreach Temporary Services,” is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization helping individuals experiencing homelessness in the Fox Cities. COTS provides transitional shelter to individuals in Outagamie, Winnebago and Calumet counties. We treat all people with dignity and respect. Our goal is to end homelessness by enabling individuals to transition to self-sufficiency and stable, independent living.
We are home to over 60 individuals on a daily basis. COTS assists residents in their transition to self-sufficiency by providing a safe, affordable place to live, food, hygiene and household needs, and life skills training. We provide Positive Placement planning and ongoing case management to each resident in our program for up to two years. We also provide three years of Positive Placement (aftercare) Services following the resident’s successful transition to other safe and stable housing.
