Dear Friends:

As we head toward 2022, life still feels uncertain. Our mental health has been greatly impacted by the world around us. Imagine you are a survivor of domestic violence or sexual assault, and that uncertainty is exponentially magnified. That’s where Oasis Family Resource Center comes in. We can provide a safe, stable, supporting, empowering place for survivors. When the world changed, Oasis changed as well. Now over a year and a half later, things are not without their challenges. Fundraisers (a main source of our operational funding beyond grants) have been cancelled.  Grants have been cut. The price for food to feed those in our Shelter has skyrocketed. Utilities have increased. The list goes on and on.

Our Shelter is still at limited capacity while domestic violence cases continue to rise. As a result, we have had to hotel survivors costing us over $20,000 since the beginning of the pandemic. Things are still a little rocky and equally as important, we are dealing with unprecedented mental health issues with our survivors.On October 18th, I began as the Executive Director and am simply amazed by the magnitude of the work that happens here. I am humbled by the group that stands alongside our survivors and honored to be chosen to lead this team. Every member of our team is here for all the right reasons.

We invite you to help us continue the work that we do by donating to our end of the year campaign. There is no better investment than helping your neighbor. 

Thank you!
Sara Shields, Executive Director
Ria Cunningham, Board Chair
