Find housing with COTS

Are you homeless or worried about becoming homeless? COTS can connect you to available housing or short-term shelter in our community – either in properties that we own or master lease, or with private landlords. To access housing or services at COTS, please call the Sonoma County Coordinated Entry System at 1-866-542-5480 (Monday – Friday, 9:00am – 5:00pm).

The affordable housing crisis in Sonoma County requires all community members to become more creative in housing solutions. If you are a private landlord interested in learning about partnership opportunities with COTS, please contact our housing team.

Mary Isaak Center Shelter

The Emergency Shelter at the Mary Isaak Center is an adults-only temporary shelter. Services are available onsite at the shelter to support you in finding affordable and safe housing in the community. The MIC Shelter is open 24-hours a day.

There is no requirement to test negative for drugs and alcohol prior to shelter entry, or to maintain sobriety to obtain services. It is expected that all people staying at the shelter work towards housing goals with the support of available staff.
