Kicked Out Fund

Ozone House provides shelter and support to hundreds of young people in our community each year. Roughly 1 in 4 of these young people seek help because their sexual orientation has led to unsafe situations at home, at school or in the community.

A contribution to the Kicked Out Fund supports Ozone House’s work on behalf of local LBGTQ youth. The fund supports our 24/7 Crisis Line - one of the first places young people in crisis turn to find support and safety.

The fund also supports PrideZone, a weekly support group for LGBTQ youth. This group meets weekly at Ozone House's Ypsilanti location and provides a safe place for LGBTQ youth to congregate, socialize, build community, and access services.

It's easy to give:
