Shelter

OASIS provides a safe and supportive environment for victims of domestic violence, sexual assault and homelessness and their children.  Our shelter is in an undisclosed location.  Procedures are in place to ensure the safety and well-being of our consumers.  If you are in need of a safe place to stay, call us anytime, day or night, at 231-775-SAFE.

We also have a 24-Hour Crisis Line for those who need immediate crisis intervention. Call 231-775-SAFE to talk to trained staff and volunteers who will provide help and a listening ear around the clock.
