Jeanne and Joe Learman, long-time friends of Ozone House, made a generous gift to initiate an Education Fund at Ozone House. This fund is available to finance a variety of educational expenses that Ozone House clients incur that are not typically covered by financial aid and scholarships – books, supplies, technology, extra-curricular fees, housing deposits, etc. Having an Education Fund specifically designated for Ozone House clients helps make the goal of a continued education beyond high school possible for many young people who do not have the resources or parental support that it takes to apply to college.
“It is good to know that… this Education Fund will allow many young people to reach their goals by allowing them to continue their education past high school. We are so pleased by the additional support others in the community have provided, which will allow this fund to continue to grow for the future.” -Jeanne Learman Ozone House Donor and Foster Care Parent
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.
