and is our innovative approach to end chronic homelessness in the City of 
Detroit. It is a comprehensive site with a holistic service model, pairing hous-
ing and an emergency shelter with healthcare, extensive case management & supportive services. The project aims to not only end homelessness but pro-
mote health equity and well-being while uplifting and developing the community.
This new one-of-a-kind service delivery model for low-barrier emergency shelter
 will operate using four core pillars.
The DHHC will provide emergency shelter for 56 single adults with specific focus 
on the medically fragile and women. Permanent housing transition support serv-
ices will be provided to all residents. The DHHC will also include a Medical Respite 
unit along with an integrated health clinic. Medical Respite is an evidence-based temporary care strategy for individuals experiencing homelessness. The model 
offers medical and behavioral health care and wraparound services for individuals 
who are too sick to be in a shelter or on the street, but not sick enough to remain hospitalized.
SUPPORTIVE HOUSING
NSO’s Supportive Housing uses a “Housing First” approach to provide permanent supportive housing services to formerly homeless adults. Our immediate and pri-
mary goal is to help individuals to quickly access and sustain permanent housing. 
NSO’s commitment to Supportive Housing includes the renovation of the historic Michigan Bell building into 155 one-bedroom apartments for formerly homeless 
adults as well as supportive scattered-site housing throughout the city. NSO con-
tinues its mission to end homelessness through the development of 45 apartment supportive housing project-The Clay Center, a campus to end homelessness on the corner of Mack and Gratiot Ave.in Detroit.
NSO BELL BUILDING   
In 2012, NSO opened the largest supportive housing apartment complex for home-
less individuals in the city of Detroit. The historic Michigan Bell Building was trans-
formed into 155 one-bedroom apartments, providing homes for formerly homeless adults. The program provides all necessary services to empower residents to take 
charge of their life by connecting them to life skills groups, substance abuse serv-
ices, basic computer skills, employment services, and primary health care at the

Jesus House For Men
The Jesus House is a men’s housing facility which provides hope, direction, 
and a sense of purpose for men who have experienced negative life-altering 
situations. Drugs, alcohol, and crime have separated many men from a life 
of hope, which we fervently attempt to achieve through daily structured teach-
ing, discipleship, and work-related program. Bible-based answers are given 
to these men to give them a true sense of purpose. Christian instructions set 
men free to become the men God created them to be.
