Community Awareness & Treatment Services, Inc.


for change


those in need



For more than 30 years, Community Awareness & Treatment Services, Inc. (CATS) has devoted its energy to passionately serving the chronically homeless population providing safe and accessible services. We have a network of eight programs that offer a continuum of care where dedicated staff give support, transportation and housing.  Our goal is to reach farther to serve those who are the hardest to reach.
