The Shelter stands ready to help at a moment’s notice. It is a 24 hour residential shelter fully staffed by advocates who walk alongside each survivor to help empower, support and guide. Each individual is given respect and encouragement to take control of their life and set their own path. The Shelter is a home – a place to heal, a place to recover.
Most of the work for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault happens one-on-one with our advocates. This team of caring highly trained individuals provide supportive listening, discusses options, help with safety plans, connects with community resources including legal, social, jobs, skills training and parenting.
Support groups are also available to connect survivors with others who have similar experiences. The groups are led by Oasis Family Resource Center staff and include babysitting if preregistered. For the latest list of groups or pre-register, connect with the office at 231-775-7299.
Sometimes parenting is hard and we wish we had a little extra support. The Oasis Family Links parenting team is here to help! Our team is trained in the nationally recognized Parents As Teachers (PAT) model which focuses on early childhood development. Our parent educators provide one-on-one, individually tailored plans to help strengthen and support your family goals. This program is designed for families who have a child aged prenatal through five and reside in the Wexford/Missaukee Intermedia School District. A special bonus – it's FREE, thanks to our grant funders, CTF, MDE and Great Start Collaborative.
