COMEA is clean and free of bugs and ready for homeless clients to move back in -- after the fire suppression system is evaluated on Monday, Sept. 16. The cost of extermination and related work is estimated at between $35,00 and $50,000.
COMEA wants to thank all the volunteers and staff who have worked long hours to prepare the shelter at 1504 Stinson Ave. for extermination and then worked to get the shelter ready to move back in.
The COMEA Board thanks the Wyoming Coalition for the Homeless, which opened the Richards Center to COMEA clients -- to the Salvation Army, which provided meals -- to Laramie County Emergency Management for the cots -- for the Cheyenne Transportation Authority to transport clients across town to the temporary housing.
Thanks to all the other agencies, businesses, churches and individuals who have helped us get through this difficult time. The health and safety of people who stay at COMEA is our top priority. And we are taking steps to keep COMEA that way.
COMEA staff and community volunteers help move back into the shelter Friday after exterminators clean out bedbugs, getting ready for homeless men, women and families to move back in on Monday. COMEA must replace much of the fire suppression system, which was damaged by the heat treatment used by exterminators.
