CAYA is a free 12-month Christ-centered residential treatment program located in Steamboat Springs, Colorado for women overcoming addictions.
Come As You Are is a free 12-month residential treatment home for women that equips them to overcome addictions and discover new lives.
The women experience a healthy community, build their work ethic and skill sets, receive the resources needed to gain freedom from their pasts, and learn to serve others in need.
CAYA residents participate in recovery groups, counseling, and life coaching to facilitate change at a heart level. In addition, they build valuable life skills by supporting themselves through residential cleaning work, managing their legal and personal appointments, having supervised visits with their children, practicing food budgeting and inventory, and practicing executive functioning skills.
We seek not only to see the women’s lives changed, but also to contribute to the betterment of the entire Yampa Valley.
Our Ministry Partner
Breaking Bonds will help mentor Come As You Are with budgets, programming, fundraising, and provide the guidance needed to stay on course and be successful, along with quarterly visits to CO to help with fundraising. We also have local partners within the Steamboat community who are eager to have a free faith-based option for women.
This is not a treatment.
This is a CURE.
This proven treatment program has an 80% success rate that we are bringing here to Steamboat Springs from our parent ministry, Breaking Bonds Ministry.
CAYA is the only residential treatment program for women in Routt County, and we are the only free women’s recovery program in the state of Colorado!
M E E T
My name is Leilani Brooks, and I’ve been set free from a 14yr. drug and alcohol addiction. I spent one-half of my life in active addiction, which culminated in my incarceration and loss of my two-year-old son. Today, by the grace and relentless love of God I have been clean and sober for over 4 years.
My destructive way of life came to an end in early 2016 when I was accepted into a Faith-Based Treatment program. After graduating from this 12-month life-changing program I knew the path the Lord wanted me to take.
I began the process of building a recovery program for women by working with the local church leaders, women’s groups, jail administrators, judges and anyone else who wanted to be a part of His vision!
Come As You Are is my answer to prayer to help suffering women, just like I was, to overcome and realize that Jesus is the ultimate physician.
Today, I am a thriving member of society, real estate broker, multi-business owner and committed Mom to a very happy little boy.
Born and raised in Colorado, Maggie has worked within the non-profit sphere for the last 10 years. As the goodness of God began to set free from her own bondage, a fiery passion was placed in her heart to walk beside women as they are set free from the chains of life’s circumstances.

Come As You Are Ministry is here to help build the Church and not take from it. Because the ministry will be located and partnered with the church, it will be our intent to grow the church and grow the impact that the local church(s) will have in our community. There is so much opportunity to reach the broken and see lives being saved by the grace of God.
In addition, we will also be funded by private donors, churches, and quarterly fundraisers. We are very thankful for the spiritual support and the openness of the church for this program to be a part of it.
We currently can hold 9-11 residents in the current 5-bedroom home (take a tour) which is an ideal number to lay that foundation. As God builds, we will expand our facility and program.
