                                                           About Our Organization
Acclaim Community Outreach Services is a 501c3 nonprofit performing arts organization also providing a variety of community services 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)
With a decline in performing arts and music in Detroit and other urban communities, Acclaim Outreach desires to offer a solution by hosting a variety of performing arts opportunities and music events.  The closing of many public schools in Detroit have occurred due to a decline in student population, mishandling of funds, and other budgetary issues.  The resolve always seems to be cuts in the areas of music, performing arts, as well as sports programs.  An article posted by The Huffington Post entitled "Rhythm and Bruse: How Cuts to Music and the Arts Hurt Kids and Communities" is a must read.  The article talks about the impact that these cuts have on music and the arts in our communities. https://www.huffingtonpost.com/yohuru-williams/rhythm-and-bruise-how-cut_b_5838406.html
 
In addition, Acclaim Community Outreach provides 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.

Economic conditions such as unemployment, housing crisis, unexpected changes in income valuation, educational challenges; human trafficking, violence & abuse, gang violence, family problems, youth peer pressure, drug & alcohol abuse are other issues that our communities face on a daily basis.  .
