This month Janet Nacu was inducted as a new board member at SOS Community Services. “For years I have been an admirer of the organization and its dedication to helping people,” says Nacu. “As a participant in the Adopt-a-Family program and former Ypsilanti resident, SOS has always had special meaning to me.”

Nacu comes to SOS with over 20 years of experience at American Express (Amex) in a variety of key management, operations, business development and client relationship positions. As Vice President & General Manager, she was responsible for the growth and expansion of many of Amex’s global corporate clients, which included major technology corporations, such as Apple, Microsoft, and other Fortune 100 clients. Her team developed payment and travel solutions, which both enhanced the employee experience and netted significant savings for clients.

Changing Times, New Needs
Thursday, March 06, 2014


Imagine a time when you experienced a major life change – the excitement, the activity it incited, how it seemed to affect every single area of your life. SOS Community Services is experiencing something very similar with our shift to a choice pantry, an exciting and positive new direction for our food program. In the midst of all the excitement, we have found that the change in our food program has led to some changes in our volunteer needs. In the past, with your help, we were able to serve 471 families, representing 1,506 individuals in a single month. Right now, we need you to continue this help more than ever!

To see a full list of volunteer opportunities at the Food Pantry read more! Register as a volunteer today by contacting Marti at or (734) 484-9945.
