PROJECT:  South Oakland Shelter (SOS) works to reduce the impact and prevalence of homelessness in the communities of Southeast Michigan.  For 25 years, SOS has worked with 67 partner congregations to provide temporary lodging and supportive services that help displaced families and individuals break the cycle of homelessness, and live independently.  With an emphasis on homeless prevention, sustainable housing solutions, and career development, SOS implements strategies and programs that provide realistic options for homeless and at-risk people seeking stabilization and self-sufficiency. Volunteers will be stripping wallpaper and painting at one of the SOS facilities.

LOCATION:  SOS Shelter  |  431 North Main Street  |   Royal Oak, MI  48067

Note:  We will meet at the SOS Shelter location and car pool to the site where our project will take place. 

ITEMS TO BRING:  If you are able, please bring gloves, wallpaper stripper, and scrapers.
