I had the pleasure of working at The Oaks for many years. We helped families reconnect after prolonged estrangements, supervised visitations between children and their non-custodial parents and made sure visitations with children between divorced couples went safely and smoothly. The working environment was warn and supportive. They do very good work at The Oaks!

My time at Tha Oaks has been extraordinary. As an intern completing my Masters in Clinical Counseling, I understand intimately the need for this organization in a society where good counseling may not always be available to those in need.

Through the Oaks, I have been able to grow under the kind guidance of Betty Barlow and able to gain real world experience. There is a sense of purpose here and a real feeling of family when you walk in the door.

I highly reccommend The Oaks to anyone who is in need of truly caring and empathetic counseling.

If I had to make changes to this organization, it would be finding ways to finance their mission in an ever increasing span to further the good works they offer to everyone who comes to their door.

What is unique about this organization?

There are many organizations that talk-the-talk of truly caring about the people that come through their door. i know without a doubt that The Oaks truly does care about every human being that enters their care and without them many would go without.

I am a student at Ashland Theological Seminary doing the Clinical Counseling program. I am working as a intern here to finish my degree. I abosolutly love The Oaks and all that they stand for. They have such a heart for people and love to serve the community as much as they can. I have seen so much positive results from here that it makes me very proud to be working for this Ministry. Betty Barlow is such a great woman to work for. She puts her heart and soul into this organization and she is the reason why this place is so successful. I apprecitate all that this organization does and I would recomend this place to anyone and everyone.

I know that there are things that could be changed in any organization. As of right now, we are going through a lot of changes and revisions that I cannot think of anything that could change. Their willingness to change and adapt to their enviroment has allowed this organization to thrive.
