June's Spotlight Organization is Ozone House

Ozone House is a community-based, nonprofit agency that helps young people lead safe, healthy, and productive lives through intensive intervention and prevention services.

On any given night, there are about 60 young people between the ages of 10 and 24 who are housed through Ozone House. Several hundred more young people are housed annually, and Ozone House provides direct support and safety to several thousand more through their 24/hour Crisis Line, their work with K-12 students experiencing homelessness in local schools, and through their Drop-In Center and outreach services.

Zing Loves Ozone House

We're so excited and honored to support Ozone House! It's incredibly valuable to have such a safe and inclusive space for young people in our community. It feels particularly poignant to share the resources of Ozone House during Pride Month, as their PrideZone program has improved the lives of numerous LGBTQ+ youth in our area through counseling, housing, and by providing a social community.

We love the work Ozone House does for young people of all walks of life and the multifaceted approach they take in their work to ensure that local youths get all the support they need and deserve. We highly encourage you to learn more about what they offer by visiting their website and consider joining us in supporting this fantastic organization.
