COMEA House and Resource Center
COMEA House is located at: 1504 Stinson Ave., Cheyenne, WY 82001.
We are two blocks west of Missile Drive on W. Lincolnway.
COMEA House provides safe and secure emergency shelter to homeless adults and families; offers transitional housing for single adults; and collaborates to create opportunities for self-sufficiency.
COMEA House is a 30-day emergency shelter for men, women, and families. Clients at the shelter receive a hot, nutritious meal at night and breakfast in the morning; showers; access to the free clothing pantry; and free medical attention at Cheyenne Crossroads Clinic next door. Currently, the shelter can accommodate 65 men and women and two families at a time.
New Shelter Upgrades
We were inspired a while back by stories of storage container houses, and we decided that COMEA House would build a new addition to our existing facility, which we’ve recently completed. The whole process took only about 5 months to complete. We got 10 storage containers from FindaStorageContainer.com so that we could keep our cost low, and construction only took about 4 months to complete. Come stop by our awesome, green storage container home today.
Clients are also asked to participate in weekly case management meetings. These sessions help clients obtain permanent housing, meaningful employment, and other goals.
COMEA House also assists travelers passing through Cheyenne in the form of travel assistance. We offer food boxes, gas vouchers, bus tokens, and bus fares.
COMEA House has made it a priority to treat all clients with respect. The agency focuses on creating a safe and secure environment for all clients and staff. The shelter is a drug-free and alcohol-free organization, and clients are offered compassion and respect while being encouraged to take responsibility for their own actions. Rules, though minimal, are applied consistently; and the shelter takes great pride in its positive reputation and low operating costs. While not fancy, the building is clean and hospitable. Staff and volunteers are supportive but do not enable negative behaviors. Those who have preconceptions about shelters based on what they have seen on TV or in the movies will find COMEA House vastly different from that stereotype.
