The COMEA House is an emergency shelter, serving men, women and families. Residents receive a hot nutritious breakfast and dinner, clean bed, personal hygiene items, a hot shower, clothing, transportation, employment assistance, and case management support.
Currently COMEA can accommodate 58 men, 12 women (8 additional beds coming in early 2016), and 3 families. We also have 12 transitional living apartments for individuals who need greater support.
COMEA also assists travelers passing through with food, gas, and bus tickets.
COMEA House Programs-
The COMEA House has a pay-to-stay program for both men and women. Individuals can stay for up to 120 days and are expected to pay $150 in the main shelter dorm, and $200 in a semi-private dorm.
These men and women are working or receive a disability income and are saving for a place of their own. The COMEA House Transitional Living Program currently serves 12 individuals.
These men and women pay up to 30% of their income in rent and program fees in exchange for a private studio apartment. These residents continue with case-management but earn gradual freedoms and independence in preparation for life out in the community.
