Who We Are
Since 1982, COMEA (Cooperative Ministry for Emergency Assistance) has operated as an emergency homeless shelter for anyone who finds themselves homeless. We operate on the belief that assistance should be available to anyone in need.
What We Do
COMEA provides housing services, free meals, case management, and limited transportation assistance for anyone who who is homeless or at high risk for homelessness in Laramie County, Wyoming. We are constantly working to change and improve our services to meet the needs of our clients.
Who We Serve
COMEA does not discriminate by race, ethnicity, religion, sex, gender, age, disability, sexual orientation, or criminal record. We welcome anyone who is homeless for any reason, willing to work hard to become independent, and looking for a fresh start!

COMEA is primarily funded by the generosity of people in our community. Your continued support is what allows us to to keep serving those who need it most!
COMEA would like to thank everyone who participated in our 2017 Turkey Trot. Overall, the event was a huge success!
We would love to thank Kristi Ruben for doing an amazing job organizing the event, and her many volunteers who made the 2017 Turkey Trot and Gobble Wobble a success. We would also like give a huge thank you to our sponsors who helped make the event possible!
And lastly, THANK YOU to all you runners, walkers, and watchers, who came out and showed the ultimate support. We had a total of 237 runners show up on race day to support COMEA, which was a huge jump from last year’s participants! Special Congratulations goes to Chris Schabron for winning the race with a time of 18 minutes, 18 seconds!
Thank you all for being such a tremendous help to COMEA! We are so lucky to have such a supportive community!
