Comitis Family Services
Serving our community since 1969
Comitis, pronounced ko-MY-tis, means friendship or companionship. It is used to build the word community. Comitis is a community of skilled professionals, caring volunteers, and enthusiastic supporters.
The Comitis Crisis Center, Inc. began operations in 1969 with an initial mission of providing alternative assistance to youth with substance abuse problems. Comitis was the first program to provide services in this Federal region for runaway youth in 1971. Today, Comitis offers a comprehensive program of services, from emergency housing, crisis intervention, short term treatment, aftercare, outreach, and education and prevention services to Aurora persons ranging from infants to senior citizens. We are the resource in our community for the homeless, the near-homeless and working poor. We are part of the Aurora's "Cold Weather Alert" program working alongside Aurora Warms the Night, and the Aurora Police Department. We provide a place to stay and a range of material resources including food and general nutritional items, diapers, bus passes, and other resources that meet basic human needs.
Our services help individual become more stable and self-sufficient.
