Passport to Self-Sufficiency

COTS Detroit

Graduate Students students helped to design a touch-point action plan for COTS’ Passport to Self-Sufficiency™ pilot phase that has been developed to create poverty-resistant families.

To understand the complexity of services that often cover a large scope of services, students first diagramed the system to support design changes and/or improvements to these services.

COTS’ Passport to Self-Sufficiency methodology helps families reach their housing, economic, health, education, and career goals, by way of coaching, mentorship, and support to overcome homelessness and break the cycle of poverty for themselves and future generations.
