Oasis Family Resource Center is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization
Oasis Family Resource Center is a 501(c)3, non-profit organization founded in 1984 with the primary purpose of providing shelter to survivors of domestic violence and their children. The agency has grown into a comprehensive shelter and counseling program as well as the owner of a resale store, Second Chance. In 1990 Oasis merged with the Family Resource Center, a parenting education and support program serving Wexford and Missaukee Counties. The Family Resource Center provides services such as educational classes and in-help parenting support. In recent years, services expanded to include counseling for children and sexual assault survivors and support of the effort to end homelessness. Oasis Family Resource Center does not discriminate on the basis of race, color, national origin, religion, sex, disability, sexual orientation or age in the delivery of services. No family is turned away for lack of money; all counseling services are free of charge.

Find out about our events and fundraisers
Oasis Family Resource Center relies on events and fundraisers to provide services to survivors of domestic violence, sexual assault and families in need. Although grant funding makes up most of our budget, they don’t cover everything. We are committed to always providing services free of charge and that takes money.
Your support means the world to us, but most importantly it means you are making a difference in the lives of our survivors.
Domestic Violence is a pattern of controlling behaviors carried out by one person in an intimate relationship to maintain power and control over the other. It is the belief by one person that they are ENTITLED to control another.
