The NSO Detroit Healthy Housing Center (DHHC) will provide low-barrier emergency shelter to 56 adults and offer transformative health and social services for its residents and neighbors. It will offer services to help homeless individuals’ transition into the NSO Clay Apartments for permanent housing, a 15-bed medical respite for the homeless to receive continuing care post-hospitalization, a fully-integrated healthcare clinic, and other on-site wraparound services, including workforce development.
Once an individual is placed in the DHHC by the Detroit Continuum of Care, we will provide a holistic approach to integrate them into our program, starting with a health assessment that includes physical, dental, behavioral, and spiritual needs. We will devise a service delivery plan that is person-centered and sets goals specific to the individual’s desired outcomes. We will structure the plan to realistically address the needs of the individual, while incorporating the fundamental need to obtain and sustain permanent housing, whether on our campus or elsewhere.
Neighborhood Service Organization’s (NSO) compassionate and professional staff provides services that have impacted countless children, youth, adults, seniors, families, and communities since 1955. We deliver holistic care and wraparound/safety net services to address social determinants impacting health, education and economic stability.
NSO’s empowering programs and services provide assistance for: older adults with mental illness; children, youth, and adults with developmental disabilities; homeless recovery services; housing development; community outreach for psychiatric emergencies; and volunteer opportunities for individuals, groups, and organizations.
