Detroit Award Program Honors the Achievement
DETROIT December 2, 2014 — Off The Streets has been selected for the 2014 Best of Detroit Award in the Community & Social Services category by the Detroit Award Program.
Each year, the Detroit Award Program identifies companies that we believe have achieved exceptional marketing success in their local community and business category. These are local companies that enhance the positive image of small business through service to their customers and our community. These exceptional companies help make the Detroit area a great place to live, work and play.
Various sources of information were gathered and analyzed to choose the winners in each category. The 2014 Detroit Award Program focuses on quality, not quantity. Winners are determined based on the information gathered both internally by the Detroit Award Program and data provided by third parties.
