My mother has told me that Oasis is a wonderful place to be. You can feel God's spirit there and everyone she knows there is very kind and loving. Her first experience at volunteering was in the Thrift Store. She loved it so much that when she started working she asked her boss if she could have every other Friday off so she could continue to volunteer at Oasis. Amazingly, her new employer said yes! This agency really helps people by meeting them at their need - food, clothes, jobs, lifeskills - whatever it is, and helping them reach their next level. Mostly, she said it is wonderful to be able to pray with people and talk about how Jesus can change their life and give them hope. There is no other place like it. She says it is great to serve there and be able to show God's love to people. My mom is very grateful to Oasis for that opportunity!

My husband volunteers his time for Oasis and can admit that it is a heartwarming experience to be able to help others less fortunate than himself. There is a real need and Oasis takes that need and gives hope to the hopeless & compassion to the downtrodden. Not one of us can say that we would never need help, and those at Oasis act upon their God given gift to help. Giving of themselves brings not only joy to those who receive but also to those who give. Thanks to all who take the time for others.

Over a year ago, I had the humbling experience of working for Oasis Compassion Agency. During this time I was able to see God’s love in action in ways I cannot express in words. Though Oasis’ mission is to empower economically challenged individuals and families by providing food, resources, job training, computer classes, and spiritual guidance, this agency accomplishes much more than its list of services can enumerate. The most rewarding experience was seeing previous clients come back to simply thank the organization for the impact it had on their lives. Oasis does not just hand out food to those in need and those who come to Oasis are not just clients, the staff and volunteers know these people by name, they are listened to, prayed for, and encouraged through the hardest of times. Since my employment, I have volunteered for Oasis’ yearly special events and I can attest to their continued efforts to reach greater needs within the community. Oasis CEO, Sharon Gill’s restless vision of helping others is contagious to all who become a part of the ever growing Oasis Compassion Agency Family.
