Historic Michigan Bell Building at

882 Oakman Blvd. is now “A Place to Call Home” for many.

The Detroit Chapter of JUGS International, Inc. remains committed to generosity and service to our community. In May 2012, we partnered with Neighborhood Service Organization to fight homelessness by becoming an “A Place to Call Home” apartment sponsor.


Neighborhood Service Organization is restoring the historic Michigan Bell Building into housing for formerly homeless adults. The 155 one-bedroom, permanent, supportive housing apartments NSO is creating are a cost effective way to move homeless individuals off the streets and into a safe environment. At the NSO Bell Building, residents will receive life-restoring supportive care helping them to live productive lives - ending their cycle of homelessness.


As a sponsor of one of the 155 apartments, the Detroit Chapter of JUGS International, Inc. partnered with Art Van to provide a fully furnished home for someone in need of a place to call home.
