Oasis Empowerment Center has radically changed my life. Throughout the years my journeys have taken me to Ethiopia, Australia, Philippines, and Mexico where I have worked to help Empower people and facilitate change. Oasis provides a safe place for women who are homeless and suffering from life controlling problems. Every time that i return to Guam and join alongside Oasis I know that I am sure to see lives set free, changed, and restored. I love getting to be apart of change and seeing restoration in a tangible way.

We need a house for more women. So many, people are asking for help. Some for short term help, others for longer term help.

Reviewing the documentation for this organization has been quite an eye-opener. Other organizations do one or two specific things. But Oasis is helping people get connected to so many main-stream services, in addition to providing effective recovery counseling that changes lives. The ways they help the homeless get housing solutions, the unemployed get job training, the disabled get assistance, the needy get helped. Its quite impressive.

Oasis is an excellent Faith-based NGO. Oasis is able to not only transform the lives of their target population, but also able to positively impact the lives of people within that target population's safety net. Oasis empowers women by building holistic capacity so women are able to overcome their barriers. Such work would not be possible without a committed and humble staff who are relationally engaged with the target population. Staff seek professional development opportunities, and Oasis regularly evaluates the program internally/externally. As an individual with a background in disability and international development I am proud recognize and honor Oasis Empowerment Center's transformative work.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Create a training curriculum/program for new staff members in order to understand their role, responsibilities, etc. and assign a specific staff member with the gift of teaching to administer training all new staffers (possibly creating HR personal). Create another micro-enterprise to generate more income for the Oasis at the same time build more social-economic capacity for Oasis clients.

I came to Oasis Empowerment Center as a volunteer in October, 2012. I am a woman who has succeeded in recovery and I wanted to help other women who were struggling with addiction. I quickly discovered that Oasis is so much more than just a recovery center. This is a community of loving and powerfully dedicated men and women who live to make Guam a better place by empowering women, children and families through every available resource. I now work for Oasis and have dedicated my life to their cause. Empowering through love, encouragement and knowledge.

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Find more money to help support their desires to do more. Their only limitation is not having the resources to accomplish all they'd like to.

Elim Pacific Ministries serves a great need in Guam. From ministry to providing housing for homeless mothers and children, this organization is amazing! There are no other nonprofits or for profits on Guam that serve women in this capacity. Elim Pacific Ministries gives food for the body and food for the soul!

I work at the Oasis Empowerment Center and it is truly an Oasis for women who are lost and suffering from drug addiction. I have seen family reunification and women get sober. This is a fantastic supportive system for women and really helps them achieve sobriety in a Christian-focused environment. Many of the ladies receive Christ as their salvation and have that extra support in their sobriety and are able to grasp their dreams again. The heart of the Oasis workers is amazing and many of the staff are prior clients giving back - it is awe-inspiring.

I still am always so challenged by the stories of those who have suffered so much in the course of a life. Pain killers have helped some cope but getting addicted ends up destroying so much more. Hopeless, helpless, many have come to Oasis when they get to the end of their rope.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Help secure another house so more can have the aftercare support they really need to help strengthen their recovery and prevent relapse.

Challenges are huge in this economy but at Oasis, women are being empowered. Former clients serve as staff and mentor others in their recovery. Wages are low but new opportunities make up the difference. Now that Hidden Treasures is opening, we are seeing families get together in a whole new way too.

This has been one of the most exciting ministries to be involved with. We see lives changed and dreams come true. There is always a time period waiting for miracles to become reality but if we are patient and do not lose heart, the beauty of transformation is the best reward.

Watching women find wholeness and healing is the most rewarding experience ever.

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

The smile that I begin to see as shame and brokeness are replaced with beauty.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Genuinely compassionate

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Build a permanent facility that would house more women and help them be empowered for success in life.

This is a GREAT place to work. We have a great team with a more of a sense of family than just a recovery center. Because of that there is a can-do attitude and a willingness to try new things to respond to the unique needs of individuals in need.

I've personally experienced the results of this organization in...

Anna Bello has been an excellent support to network more people and businesses in the community to assist with the special needs of women.

Ways to make it better...

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Raise more funds so they have an adequate budget to work with.

More feedback...

What I've enjoyed the most about my experience with this nonprofit is...

Is that they trust God and expect to see miracles happen even if the situation seem impossible.

The kinds of staff and volunteers that I met were...

Great people from the University of Guam and Pacific islands University have served as interns here making valuable contributions in the lives of the women served.

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

Purchase the Days Inn and begin serving women with children which is still a significant unmet need in Guam.

Ways to make it better...

We had more skilled laborers to help in special areas.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

There are so few job opportunities for women in recovery that we really need to find ways to effectively create jobs that will provide a living wage.

One thing I'd also say is that...

Even thought there is a limited number of people to help with the process of recovery in women's lives, this organization is making a significant difference and helping change lives in practical ways.
