TOMORROW IS 
 
 
 
#GivingTuesday is a global day of giving that follows Thanksgiving, Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, and Cyber Monday. It kicks off the charitable season, when many focus on their holiday and end-of-year giving.
 
Each year Ozone House invests 32,380 hours of individual and group services to families and youth, provides 1,200 backpacks to homeless students, and offers safe refuge and support to 4,000 young people. Will you help us support the resilient youth and families that we have the privilege of working with?
