Adult Education Programs

Oasis changes lives by providing multiple educational opportunities to women looking to rise out of poverty. Childcare is provided to ensure mothers can make a commitment to their education. As of 9/1/2020, our childcare is suspended due to the pandemic. We will re-launch this program as soon as possible.
