COTS Passport to Self-SufficiencyTM assists families in
reaching their housing, economic, health, education and
career goals through coaching, mentorship and support as
they overcome homelessness and break the poverty cycle for
the next generation – and beyond. This trauma-informed,
research-based, transformative, whole family approach is
designed to create poverty-resistant families and is the
overarching framework for all of COTS’ work. All programs
and services, including emergency shelter operations,
child care, mobility coaching, and housing support assistance
are provided within the framework of this theory of change.

COTS provides these services through a network of
partnerships aimed at building healthy relationships that
support the mutual growth and development of the whole
family while also supporting families in meeting their basic
needs and the needs of their households.                                COTS CEO, Cheryl P. Johnson and Soup City Hosts, Jason Carr      We invite you to put on your fancy hat and join us for Leading

WHAT WE DO
                                                                  Each year, Detroit Children’s Fund hosts two major fundraisers: a golf outing and a gala.

and making strategic investments in schools, educators,
and systems, Detroit Children’s Fund (DCF) seeks
to dramatically improve the quality of schools for
Detroit’s students.

DCF bridges the gaps in funding and expertise, directing
resources and best practices that are proven to help
schools improve on the whole. We support efforts to attract
and retain strong educators. We fund comprehensive
trainings for current and up-and-coming school leaders
and in-classroom coaching for teachers. We help schools
acquire the technology and training they need to make
and monitor progress, guided by data-informed
decision making. And we provide computers, textbooks
and other learning tools essential for student learning.
In short, we help provide the resources schools need to
be great but simply can’t afford.
