“Youth can do a lot of really powerful and important things. We just need people to believe in us.”


COVID-19 Updates

Following guidance from the CDC, World Health Organization and local/state authorities, Oasis Center's office is currently closed with the majority of our staff still working remotely out of precaution for the potential spread of COVID-19. A few essential services are operating safely from the building.

We will do our best to continue providing services to the majority of our clients remotely. If you are a client or group participant, please stay in touch with your Oasis contact and continue to follow program and agency updates via social media.

Please be safe, practice social distancing and remember to be kind. If you have been in contact with someone showing signs of COVID-19 or suspect you may be sick, please call your doctor and follow the steps as outlined by the CDC.

Our Stand Against Racism and Racist Systems

At Oasis Center, we believe in social justice and racial equality, and we condemn institutions whose policies and practices lead to injustice and hate.

But are we doing enough?

As an agency that strives to empower youth and collaboratively create justice and equity in the institutions that impact them, we need to take a hard look at ourselves to see where we are failing to live up to our own ideals. We know we need more diversity in leadership positions so that our agency better represents the youth we serve. We know that despite good intentions not all of our young people feel as welcome as we would like when entering our building.

George Floyd's horrendous murder by Minneapolis police along with the murders of Ahmaud Arbery, Breonna Taylor, Tony McDade and David McAtee has captured the nation's attention and left more people in our country feeling outraged and anguished. All of this is occurring in a pandemic that is disproportionately affecting Black communities.

It has to stop.
