That’s a town full of people—kids—Ozone House helps through crisis situations every year. WILL YOU join us?

W.I.S.H. Holiday Gift Program

We ask for Wish lists from youth, and when we fulfill those wishes, we believe it instils Hope in youth, knowing their community has embraced them during the holidays. Your support Wraps the youth in compassion due to your generosity. If you would like to purchase specific gifts for a family or individual youth for the holidays, send an email to WISH.
