    Annual Gross Income:

    Annual Gross Expense:

    Open to Loans: NO

  • Funding Usage

    This is the cost of covering the expenses for 9 residents for a full year, since we do not have them pay for their own expenses while in the program. This can include food, medications, vitamins, fitness classes, books and materials, rent and utilities, activities and otherwise.

  • Business Plan

    This year, there will be an addition built on to the current house so that the number of residents can increase. Once successful systems and structures are in place for running this women’s home, the plan is to build a home that can have 40 residents. CAYA is in the process of trying to obtain the surrounding land that it is currently at, which will be large enough to build this new residence. There is also the plan for increasing the number of work contracts with businesses and organizations in the area. So far, there has been a focus on cleaning and childcare contracts for the women to do while in the program. The founder of Come As You Are (CAYA) is a former addict who went to a similar program as CAYA, in Arkansas, which changed her whole life around and was the key to breaking the addiction cycle. She knew from her own personal experience that programs like that can work, so she set out to starting her own residential treatment program so that she could save more lives. In many cases, not only does the client just become healthy in body, mind, and soul, but there is a ripple effect it has on their family and friends. Routt County, and the close by Moffat County, do not have many available options to find help for addicts, yet it is an area that needs it most. There is high levels of suicide, depression, and drug and alcohol abuse in these ski town surrounding areas. CAYA wants to lower these numbers and provide the shelter, tools, and resources to people who are struggling and in need. So many lose their battle against addiction, but we want to be a part of changing that. Do you?

  • Self Identified Competition

    1. Mountain Medical: Road to Recovery – this is an outpatient service that they have available in Steamboat Springs. They offer detoxification assistance, individual & group therapy, and pain management. For detox & recovery they offer services such as massage therapy, hormone optimization therapy, acupuncture, and medications. 2. Foundry Treatment Center – this is the only other inpatient center that is located in the area. It costs $95,000 for 90 days of treatment, and will only work with self-pay or private insurance. It is difficult for people in the demographic to obtain treatment. This is a male-only treatment center. They focus on the medical, clinical, family, and wellness needs of the clients. They have many different therapy options such as dialectal behavior therapy, cognitive behavioral therapy, outdoor experiential therapy, and aroma therapy. There are 3 options at the Foundry: detox (3-7 days), residential (30-90 days), and partial (3-6 months). 3. Mind Springs – this is another outpatient service they have available in Steamboat Springs. They offer therapy and counseling to those struggling with mental illness and addiction. They specialize in research-based, proven Evidence-Based Practices. They have enhanced outpatient, intensive outpatient, matrix model, strategies for self-improvement and change, thinking for change, driving with care, and medication assisted treatment programs available once to twice per week. Medicaid can be used for towards their services. Come As you Are (CAYA) is the only hands-on, all-encompassing women’s program available for those struggling with addiction in any of the surrounding area. A huge factor that sets CAYA apart is the fact that it is FREE! That means that our funding is dominantly donor based. CAYA is not in the business of trying to make money off of clients. Our heart is to reach as many women as we can, no matter their financial status, and to bring them freedom from addiction. CAYA’s goal is to bring healing in all areas: physically, mentally, emotionally, relationally, and spiritually. Unlike the competitors, CAYA offers a year of inpatient treatment, as well as a year two option. Because the program is of no cost to the clients, there is not the stress and burden to rush the process and get back to working. The women are fully provided for and can take the year to really focus on themselves and retrain their minds into having healthy habits and ways of coping. Similar to the competitors, CAYA also incorporates medical, clinical, wellness, and family matters. We see the value in these areas and that is why we bring in counselors, fitness instructors, nutritionists, and likewise, to be a part of the process for the women during their time at CAYA. It is noticed that many of the competitors can use medication as the way to try and treat those struggling, and while medication can be helpful and we see the benefit with some, we don’t want that to be the answer to solving the client’s issues. Many times, they can begin to just become addicted to their medications.
