POEM Design recognizes its responsibility to the wider community and seeks to make a meaningful impact on the lives of its neighbors and customers. We proudly support the National Pediatric Cancer Foundation, Canine Companions, and Cass Community Social Services. We encourage everyone to take an active role in their community by supporting these groups and others like them.
National Pediatric Cancer Foundation
The National Pediatric Cancer Foundation is dedicated to funding research to eliminate childhood cancer. Their focus is to find less toxic, more effective treatments through a unique collaborative research initiative called the Sunshine Project.
POEM Design contributes to this collaborative research model with 30 hospital partners and leading scientists. Since its inception, the NPCF has donated over $30 million to research and has funded over 28 project initiatives and POEM Design is proud to support them on an ongoing basis.
Canine Companions is leading the service dog industry so their clients and their dogs can live with greater independence. They provide service dogs to adults, children, and veterans with disabilities and facility dogs to professionals working in healthcare, criminal justice, and educational settings. Since their founding in 1975, their dogs and all follow-up services are provided at no cost to their clients.
Independence shouldn’t be limited to those who look or live a certain way. Disability reaches all races, classes, and backgrounds, and Canine Companions does too. Clients come to Canine Companions because of their reputation, the quality of our dogs, the experience of our training staff, and the desire to lead a life with greater independence. They are committed to providing services to all qualified clients and POEM Design is proud to support them in their efforts.
Cass Community Social Services is a Detroit-based agency with a person-centered philosophy, dedicated to providing food, housing, health services, and job programs.
Established as a nonprofit 501 (c) (3) in 2002, prior to that many of its programs started as a part of Cass Community United Methodist Church. Cass Community Social Services works across the city in areas of concentrated poverty providing programs for food, health, housing, and jobs. POEM Design is committed to helping CCSS grow its influence and expand its effect on the Detroit area.
