Excellent Construction also supports the Out-Wayne County Homeless Services Coalition. The Coalition works to provide permanent supportive housing solutions for low- and moderate-income Wayne County residents outside the city of Detroit.
Supportive housing is permanent, independent, affordable housing for families and individuals that meet any of the following criteria:
- Are low- to moderate-income
- Have identified special needs, including physical ability restrictions
- Are currently, or in danger of becoming, homeless
- In supportive housing, residents have access to various assistance programs and services to address such issues as nutrition, education, financial stability, and job placement.
Together, Excellent Construction and the Out-Wayne County Homeless Services Coalition work to create supportive housing environments that meet the immediate needs of those facing homelessness, and improve the overall stability and attractiveness of the greater community.

All 38 units are considered “affordable housing” and income is one component of eligibility.
