CAYA is a free 12-month Christ-centered residential treatment program located in Steamboat Springs, Colorado for women overcoming addictions.

Our Mission

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 Ministry is our parent sponsor, who currently operates as a men-only 7-month program. In line with their vision of planting Breaking Bonds programs nationwide, Come As You Are will be their first location for women and the first chapter outside of Arkansas.

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!


Our Team


Executive Director

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.


Program Director

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.

She yearned to walk beside women as they came to know their real identity, and experience the freedom only Jesus can offer. Three years ago, the lord brought Maggie into the addiction treatment field and now in the process of becoming a Certified Addiction Counselor. Maggie is blessed and honored to bring her experience and passion to the team at CAYA.


Discipleship & Spiritual Direction

Rebecca deeply cares about becoming and helping others to become all that Christ intended for us to be. The Lord often invites her into what seems like unintended training grounds, and He taught her about discipleship through years of practice before she really knew what He was doing!

Rebecca and her husband have operated two nonprofits over a span of eleven years, and she loves to train and equip disciples who experience Christlike transformation, to create spaces where others can encounter God’s lavish love, and to help God’s people discover and share their gifts with a world that really needs them. The Lord sweetly lets Rebecca pioneer and adventure with Him, and He has stirred her love for unity and collaboration in the Church. In addition to serving at CAYA, Rebecca operates a nonprofit called The Hesed Project and co-disciples a local home church community.


Administrative Coordinator

Harper was born and raised in Steamboat Springs, CO. Through the years of living here in Steamboat, Harper found a love for the community. Harper grew up in the non-profit world. She worked for STARS and volunteered for YoungLife all throughout middle school and high school. She found her passions were centered on advocating for women.

When she dreamt of her future she always imagined herself working for an organization that its sole purpose was to support women in life’s tribulations. After graduating from the University of Colorado Boulder, Harper moved back to Steamboat because of her avid appreciation for the valley. She worked in town for two years before deciding to make her dreams of having a job with greater purpose a reality. She found out about CAYA and how there was an open role for an Administrative Coordinator. God shared a bit of his plan to her by blessing her with this opportunity to work for an amazing organization and being led by awesome women!


Resident Manager

Jessica was born in San Jose, California and moved to Kansas City, Missouri at ten years old. As a teen God had given her sister a vision for her. Where women were walking into the throne room in rags and full of shame. God called Jessica to sit next to Him to reveal to them their beauty and their hearts of gold. She knew God had a plan for her!

Read More
During high school she volunteered her summers at an orphanage in Mexico, still searching for what God’s call for her was. A year after graduating high school, Jessica got married. She worked as a manager at a restaurant where close to half the staff were from a troubled youth treatment center. This gave her a passion for working with women in recovery. Jessica and her husband moved from Kansas City, Kansas to Steamboat in faith that God had a plan for them, and after some waiting on the Lord, He called her to CAYA!

Our Funding

Church Partnership

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.

Ministry Growth

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.
