Homelessness for youth means more than the absence of a safe place to sleep, enough food to eat or shelter from the cold. Homelessness for young people means a lack of safe, stable, reciprocal relationships and vulnerability to dangers such as physical assault, sexual assault, or human trafficking.
Each year, Ozone House serves several thousand young people throughout Washtenaw and surrounding counties in Southeast Michigan. Ozone House provides free, confidential, and voluntary shelter and support services to runaway, homeless, and high-risk youth ages 10-24, and their families.
Ozone House is looking for local companies to support our work with young people in a variety of ways in 2021.
- Financial Support: Help us grow our programs and services by sponsoring our virtual and live events. 2021 corporate funders will be recognized at all of our events this year.
- Donate Goods: Host a drive for our highest need items listed here or donate items, experiences, or services that can be auctioned at our events.
- Volunteer: Use your time and talents to help Ozone House via our volunteer committees, career panels, service days, or volunteer with our 24 Hour Crisis Line.
- Educate and Advocate: Help advocate for public policies that improve the lives of young people or invite Ozone House staff and young people to share about key issues.
Thank you for considering support of these services, as we strive to help youth develop essential life skills in safe spaces, improve their relationships, and enhance their self-image so that they may realize their full potential.
For more information on our levels of corporate support as well as other opportunities for support throughout the year, please contact our development director Scott Ellis at email@example.com.
