11th Annual Pre-Christmas Celebration of Praise 2006
Special Celebration Designed For Transitional Housing/Shelter Residents
Each year Acclaim Community Outreach hosts its Annual Pre-Christmas Praise Celebration to meet the needs of transitional housing residents throughout the Metro Detroit area.  During this most precious time of the holiday season, many individuals suffer from depression, loneliness, and hopelessness.  The Pre-Christmas Celebration offers the residents of transitional housing an opportunity to participate in an uplifting evening of music, food, fun and fellowship.  Participants in this event have been Metro Emergency Services (mental health), Mariner^s Inn (men^s facility), SHAR House (men & women^s housing), Detroit Rescue Mission Ministry^s Oasis Center (men) & Genesis House (women), & Salvation Army Harbor Light/Acres of Hope, including children of transitional housing residents.  Additional transitional housing facilities are added each year.  This event is free to all transitional housing residents.

During this event, residents are provided with prevention materials and giveaways such as hats, gloves, blankets, toiletries and a nutritious all-you-can-eat meal.  The fun-filled evening also provides residents with the opportunity to enjoy music from local vocalists, musicians, youth and adult dance groups, & ensembles.  The Pre-Christmas Celebration is funded by donations that are received from local businesses, individuals in the community, the ACOS Board of Directors, mini-grants, as well as other non profit organizations. 

On Saturday December 16, 2006, Acclaim Community Outreach Services celebrated its eleventh year of feeding  transitional housing residents.  Residents served were from the Salvation Army Harbor Light/Acres of Hope, Mariners Inn, Detroit Rescue Mission Oasis Center & Genesis House & More.  Special musical performances were presented by recording artist Sounds of Imani, Detroit Rescue Mission Choir(DRMM), Anointed N'Christ mime group, youth violinist and many others.
