Personal Intervention & Support Housing & Transitional Living
Ozone House is the "IT" place for youth ages 10-20 and their families to access help for a variety of issues! Ozone House is a community-based, nonprofit agency that helps young people lead safe, healthy, and productive lives through intensive intervention and prevention services. Since 1969, Ozone House has actively developed unique, high-quality housing and support programs and services that provide support, intervention, training, and assistance to runaway, homeless, and high-risk youth and their families. Through these support services, we help youth develop essential life skills, improve their relationships, and enhance their self-image so that they may realize their full potential for growth and happiness.

The Education Project for Homeless Youth, a project of the Washtenaw Intermediate School District, works to ensure students in homelessness and temporary living situations enroll, regularly attend and succeed in school.
In 2009-2010, we served more than 600 children and youth Washtenaw County, ages 0-21, from the 10 school districts and nine public school academies in the county. Every single school district in the county is working with students in temporary living situations.
We work closely with all of the shelters in Washtenaw County, but also serve families living in motels or bouncing from family member to family member. We also work with students in temporary foster care placements.
We are funded primarily through the federal McKinney-Vento Homeless Assistance Act, reauthorized in January of 2002. The Act guarantees that students who are homeless have equal access to the same free and appropriate public education provided to others. We also rely on private donations and grants to directly meet student needs.
