6. Volunteers keep our doors open

Volunteers started COTS 30 years ago. Today, they provide almost half of our total labor—cooking, cleaning, gardening, repairing, teaching, playing music.

At any hour of the day—on any day—volunteers are working for COTS. They might be making meals in our kitchen, they might be patching a quilt together, repairing a bicycle cable, planning a car wash, writing a speech, organizing art supplies—you name it.

We could not do our work without you!
