ROYAL OAK, Mich., February 13, 2020 – Howard & Howard Attorneys PLLC, has donated $12,500 to the South Oakland Citizens for the Homeless (SOCH). The nonprofit SOCH has operated the Welcome Inn Day Center on W. 13 Mile Road since 2003.
The Welcome Inn Day Center is a “low barrier” wintertime day-center, which means that guests are accepted as they are with few stipulations or requirements. The Center also works with a group of local churches which provide overnight accommodations, enabling 24-hour sheltering at a time of year when a denial of care could result in dire consequences for vulnerable, homeless citizens.
The donation is part of Howard & Howard’s “12 Months of Giving” initiative, a year-long charitable campaign involving all the firm’s offices and their respective communities. Through the initiative, which was part of the firm’s 150th anniversary celebrated over the course of 2019, Howard & Howard donated $150,000 to various community and charitable groups.
