             About Our Organization
Acclaim Community Outreach Services is a 501c3 nonprofit community services organization serving the Metro Detroit community.  It continues to serve the Metro Detroit community at its  location on the west side of Detroit at 24650 W. McNichols Detroit, MI 48219 (please do not sent correspondence to this address).  (All correspondence should be sent to P.O. Box 15299 Detroit, MI   48215)

We provide a variety of life-changing programs and services to individuals and families throughout the Metro Detroit area.  Our organization collaborates and networks with other outreach organizations to facilitate the type of events and programs needed to encourage youth, families, and individuals to rise above their circumstances.

Recent economic conditions have presented the community with increased unemployment, housing crisis, unexpected changes in income valuation, educational challenges; in addition to issues such as domestic violence & abuse, gang violence, family problems, youth peer pressure, drug & alcohol abuse..... and the list goes on.  Although no one wants to be homeless, lose their job or family, or be deprived of proper educational, employment and empowerment opportunities, things do happen and we need to develop ways to resolve situations and not just patch them up.

Current programs and services are:  
 
  • Emergency Food Distribution Program (Funding has been received through United Way with Gleaners Community Foodbank as our fiduciary.  We are also a partner agency with Gleaners)
  • Clothing/Toiletries Giveaway
  • Community Movie Night
  • Literacy In Motion Reading Program
  • Praise in the Park Community Outreach event
  • Performing Arts Events
  • Annual Christmas Program for Shelter Residents & Community (Partner with Gifts for All God's Children Program)
Other programs keyed for expansion with acquisition of new facility:
 
  • Computer/Technical Training
  • Job/Career Training Seminar 
  • Senior Citizen Outreach
  • Financial Management Seminar
  • Youth Scholarship Program

Our expectation is for the community we serve to have full assurance in the honesty and integrity of ACOS. Our organization welcomes all who desire to participate in our events, programs and services.
