BECAUSE OF YOU...
Ozone House Graduate, Matthew Kimmins, Announces Matching Funds 

"Please join me, my family, and others who have teamed up to donate $25,000 in matching funds - promising to double every dollar you donate before December 31st."

In 1991 I was homeless. I was a high school dropout. I was angry at the world. Ozone House gave me a safe place to collect myself, get counseling, and hold down a steady job. They game me compassion when I needed it most.

Since then, I have gone back to school, followed a dream, established a prominent career and I am starting a family. This would have been a very different story had it not been for the support I received in that very crucial time. Now I mentor others who need help as well, and recently had my "little brother" be the best man at my wedding.

When you help a youth in need today, you are helping all the people they touch in the future. No one sees that as much as I do, so... thank you.

 

Sincerely, M. R. Kimmins
