NSO Diamond Anniversary

Gala & Fundraiser

August 2015 marked the Diamond (60th) Anniversary of Neighborhood Service Organization (NSO).  We were founded as a nonprofit, multi-service agency in 1955 in response to the unmet needs of low-income families and communities in the city of Detroit.  NSO's programs and services have greatly expanded over the years.  Today NSO is changing lives of the homeless, older adults with mental illness, persons with intellectual and developmental disabilities, individuals in crisis, low-income youth and other vulnerable citizens with innovative human services.

On April 9, 2016, NSO will host a gala celebration and fundraiser marking “60 Years of Building Brighter, Stronger Futures.” The event, to be held at the fabulous MotorCity Casino Hotel Sound Board, promises to be a wonderful evening. 

Guests will enjoy a lavish dinner, cash bar, music, silent auction and awards presentation, followed by delectable desserts, a live band and dancing in the uniquely cool MotorCity Sound Board.
