What is The Oasis Center for Women and Girls?Founded in 2007 by Kelly Otte, The Oasis Center was created with a vision of being a diverse environment where women and girls from all walks of life are connected and empowered. When you change the life of a woman or girl, you strengthen the entire community. Oasis aims to be the central resource for women and girls to reach their greatest potential. We meet women where they are, equip them with the tools to reach their goals, and celebrate with them as they progress on their journey.
When you come to Oasis, you will find a professional and personable team who truly believe in the power of women. The Oasis Center’s founders are women and men from all walks of life, and they represent diverse interests and experiences. Oasis provides programs, services, and activities designed to address personal, professional, and economic concerns facing women, girls, and their families. Oasis provides an empowering, safe, and celebratory space for women and girls to come together, dream, achieve, and thrive.
