The Neighborhood Service Organization has been lending a helping hand to Detroiters in need since its inception in 1955. Among their homeless recovery services is the organization’s renovated Bell Building on Oakman Boulevard (near the Lodge Freeway) in Detroit that offers 155 one-bedroom, fully furnished apartments for formerly homeless adults. With the goal of helping residents reshape their lives and get on their feet, the building offers numerous services and amenities such as financial literacy and nutrition classes, addiction treatment, a gym, chapel, and library. The organization’s Life Choices program aims to help individuals with intellectual or development disabilities. The program is accessible to persons of all ages and offers school support services, summer programs, art therapy, and psychiatric care. Additionally, the organization’s older adult services aim to help societies’ older members retain independence. The program helps older adults determine which nursing home best suits their needs as well as providing mental health services to more than 5,000 individuals each year. To date, the program has helped more than 1,000 people leave nursing homes and live more independent lives.
