As the school-year winds down, The Education Project will be shifting into planning mode for next year.
We will not have regular volunteer hours during the months of June and July, but could still use your help with collecting school supplies and toiletry items. We are in particular need of feminine hygiene products, deodorant, men's and women's underwear (all sizes) and socks (all sizes).
Several groups and organizations are already planning drives over the summer for items that will be needed in August as we begin to help new students and families.
If you would like to help, please contact Susan Allison for more information.
New Next Year!
We plan to implement several new initiatives next year to complement our current services. Look for more information later this summer on:
Teacher Appreciation Weeks
The Graduation Project (bigger and better than 2016)
BackPack Words of Encouragement and Special Treats
Our goal is to add a little sunshine to the necessary services we already provide as well as give more opportunities for our community to show their support for our students and families.
If you know a youth or family who could benefit from
Ozone House services,
please have them call our 24-hour Crisis Line:
There is always somebody here to listen.
The Education Project
The Education Project, sometimes known as the Education Project for Homeless Youth, is designed to ensure that students experiencing homelessness or unstable living situations enroll, regularly attend, and succeed in school. Under the federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, students who are homeless must have equal access to free and appropriate public education.
The Education Project works closely with liaisons in the school districts, allies within each school, community partners, and families to identify and serve all youth affected by homelessness.
