Neighborhood Service Organization
Neighborhood Service Organization (NSO) was established in 1955 as a private non-profit human service agency. The Mission of NSO is to provide diverse and innovative community development programs and community services to meet the changing needs of the regions population. Prevention and training are fundamental components of our programs. These components empower consumers and enhance the skills of other professionals.
Help Us Meet The Kresge Foundation Challenge Grant

To date, we have raised nearly $500,000 of the $750,000 needed. If we can obtain the additional $250,000 by the deadline, Kresge will grant $500,000 to our Bell Capital Campaign.
To assist in meeting the grant, please click the button below to watch a video featuring residents, take a virtual tour of the Bell Building, and make a donation or set up your own personal fundraiser to support the NSO Bell Building.
All who give will recieve a personal story about a Bell Building resident and information about how their donation will help change the resident's life.

NSO has opportunities for individuals, families, businesses, and community or faith organizations to share their holiday spirit
The NSO Holiday Elf Program, which runs through December 18, provides opportunities big and small for everyone to make a difference in the lives of our most vulnerable neighbors.
