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

Leilani

Executive Director
leilani@cayasteamboat.com

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.

Read More

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.

Jesus has done so much in her life, and she gives all the glory to him for helping her overcome so much in her life. She is still in process, but seeing her scars for beauty. Dana’s favorite verse to stand on is Dueteronomy 31:6 Be strong and courageous. Do not be afraid or terrified because of them, for the Lord God goes with you, he will never leave you nor forsake you.

My name is Sandra. I have been a follower of Jesus for 13 years and have experienced His power and freedom from so many spiritual bondages in my own life and family and I am a strong believer in the power of Worship & prayer!

I met the CAYA ministry at a worship night in Hayden in November 2020. It was a divine appointment and a sweet experience in the Holy Spirit! That night the Lord expanded my heart to love and encourage His daughters to find the same hope and faith in Him and I have been serving, loving and learning with them ever since. My favorite is Worship & prayer together,we also meet for 1/1 prayer, mentoring, Bible studies, baptisms, retreats, conferences, events..

I have been so encouraged by the lives that surrender to Jesus in this program and experience His freedom, healing, deliverance, family restorations, miracles…in such short periods of time. Aleluia!! I recently joined the amazing staff team of “Warriors bride”.

Jenny

Resident Manager
jenny@cayasteamboat.com

I was raised in a house with a drug addict and alcoholic father. He also had a gambling problem so my entire childhood I never had stability or even love. On top of all of that my father was verbally and emotionally abusive to all of us in my family. 

Read More

Sure my mother loved us and did the best she could to show us love and take care of us but she was so consumed with trying to save my dad. In high school I turn to drugs, alcohol, and reckless sexual behavior which led me down a path of even more abuse and brokenness. I eventually ended up in Colorado where Father God put amazing people in my life who lead me in His direction. I surrendered my life to him, excepted Jesus Christ as my Lord and Savior and my life has never been the same! He has delivered me completely from addiction and depression! He has made me whole and he has shown me what true real love looks like. He has satisfied every longing in my heart and has healed me from the trauma I have endured! I told him that I want to serve him for the rest of my life by being a part of walking alongside women struggling with addiction, abuse, depression, and so many other strongholds we struggle with. I want to show them His love, lead them closer to Him, and watch how he transforms them and sets them free! He opened the door for me to be a part of the Come As You Are Ministry so I walked through that door holding his hand and became a part of the most amazing team of Jesus loving warriors!

I began coaching with an intense longing to help others awaken freedom and joy in their lives, through whole wellness. I have been blessed to work with hundreds of clients across many platforms and demographics, over the past twelve years

cherish each story into which I’ve been invited, but the women of CAYA remain to be my most celebrated clients. Partnering with the Spirit and walking with them through their healing, watching them courageously embrace freedom and new life, is an honor like no other. 

In my work with residents, I partner with the Spirit to shepherd clients into the hidden places where their addiction began - where their original wounds are still festering. Together we bring the wounds into His light. When brought into the light, residents are able to see what drove them to addiction were actually broken pieces of their identity that ached for the wholeness and the unconditional love for which they were made. After identifying their original wounds and honoring the ashes of life lost in addiction, I equip them to overcome; to create sustainable habits that empower them to remain in their new identity and in recovery; help them rebuild their confidence and self-worth on His firm foundation; and ultimately call them up into a life surrendered to His grace, living as royal daughters under His banner, “it is finished.” My desire is that they fall back in love with the Lord and His radical character, through our shared time together. And that through discovering His character, they experience His freedom, peace and rest, so that they may go back into the world fully equipped and overflowing with Him. 

I don’t have all the answers - at all. I simply have my testimony thus far, His perspective of grace and radical moments of powerful redemption to encourage and equip my clients. It is by grace alone that I stand in my identity today. And it is my heart’s passion to help each client trust His grace in their own life, so that they too may rise from their ashes into the beauty of their Heavenly identity, so they may run the race of their anointing.

My name is Maya and I am 23 years old. I’ve been living in Steamboat Springs for over a year now and I love to ski, hike, and hangout with friends. I chose CAYA because I love how unique the program is and how close together and family-like the work environment is. Everybody is friendly, optimistic and welcoming.

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.
