Welcome to Oasis Social Ministry
Oasis is a private, not for profit, charitable corporation. Our mission is to provide comprehensive services to the homeless and the less fortunate in Portsmouth, Western Chesapeake and Northern Suffolk. Below is a map showing our original service boundaries (Portsmouth), and how we have expanded them over the years.
Operating, uninterrupted since 1970, Oasis has been continuously meeting the basic socio-economic needs of this region. Celebrating over 45 years of community service, Oasis was formed by five local Catholic Parishes. Today it has evolved into an ecumenical multi-serving agency committesd to helping individuals and families to meet their basic needs and to support their efforts of self-reliance and independence.
Oasis realizes its ministry and self-sufficiency vision from its Wiliamsburg Avenue and County Street locations. Services are coordinated in a manner to enhance and to avoid duplication of other community service efforts.
Oasis, in partnership with individual donors, local businesses and several citywide, state and federal agencies works passionately to fulfill its compassionate mission of SERVICE.
