Why volunteer support matters so much
“When we came (to the COTS Family Shelter), we had no idea what was going to happen to us. With two kids, not knowing if you are going to have a roof over your head after your six months at COTS are up is just about the scariest thing ever. But all the help you and everyone provided us made it possible. You help the hopeless and lost to get back on their feet and find their way again, and for that, we will be forever grateful to COTS and all of you who work so hard to help the people who need it the most. We will never forget everything you have done for our family.”
