THE STORY:

SOS Community Services

Everyone deserves a place to call home. Since 1970, SOS has promoted housing stability and family self-sufficiency for 5,000 people annually in Washtenaw County, Michigan. Services include emergency food and personal care items, utility and transportation assistance, connection to mainstream resources, shelter, Rapid Re-housing, case management, and after-school and summer programs for children at-risk.

SOS Sunny Days Summer Program

Every summer, the SOS Sunny Days Program provides 30 homeless children, ages 6-12, a safe and fun place to learn and play.  This eight-week program is the only free summer activities program in Washtenaw County for homeless children.

Every day, kids in Sunny Days work on their literacy skills by reading, writing, and visiting local libraries. The weekly routine includes arts and craft projects, psycho-social groups, swimming lessons, outdoor games, and cultural and educational field trips. In these activities, children learn communication skills, problem-solving, conflict resolution, anger management, team work, and substance abuse prevention. Children receive individualized attention and one-on-one therapeutic interventions from staff and volunteers.

Sunny Days helps children overcome the challenges of homelessness so they can succeed at home and prepare for starting school again in the fall. The program provides homeless parents with a high-quality intervention for children while freeing them to work toward their employment or housing goals.
