For Parents

WE OPEN THE DOOR TO STRENGTHEN FAMILIES
giving parents and kids a chance to rebuild healthy relationships.

  • “Ozone House provided a lifeline and helped our divided family come back together.” – Parent of Ozone House youth

    Transitioning to adulthood can be a challenge for youth and for their parents.

    Sometimes youth feel so lost, confused, and hurt that they don’t know how to express those feelings. Imagine the rift that would cause in a family if it went unchecked and misunderstood. When families come through our door, Ozone House helps them communicate, heal, and reunite.

    Together, we can help fractured families come back together when it’s most critical.
