WHAT WE OFFER AT OASIS HOME

“Pathway to Freedom” A series of workshops created exclusively by women for women. This series of workshops is designed to increase the participant’s self-esteem by utilizing the four Integral Modalities of Psycho-spiritual, Interpersonal, Biological, and Worldly experiences to engage, strengthen, and create a sense of self by using facilitated group discussions, journaling, meditation, consciousness-raising experiences and affirmations to connect all aspects to self. Although the program addresses most women's issues with esteem, the workshops are geared to support women who have experienced and/or lived with self-esteem issues in abusive and unsupportive environments.

The goal of the workshops is to:

  • Educate women in the matter of health and wellness

  • Illustrate techniques to use to self-regenerate and create a personal balance

  • Transform, transition, and create change

  • Explore self-worth, personal power, and authority

Quarterly Mandated Meetings

“Transitioning to You” by magnifying the four words used to begin all the sessions in discussion and as a reminder.
Attitude:
Learn that Attitude, good or bad, affects everything in life.

Change is difficult, but possible.
Recognize and capitalize on existing inner strengths.

Responsibility:
Learn that Responsibility is a choice.
Self-respect and respecting others is mandatory.
Responsible behavior involves making, managing, and keeping commitments.

Communication:
Effective Communication is critical to creating and maintaining positive relationships. Learn to listen respectfully to others and yourself.
Conflict and anger are normal but must be constructively managed.

Decision Making/Problem Solving:

Good decisions require honest recognition and acknowledgment of the problem, situation, or circumstance.
Cooperation and teamwork are a good way to solve problems.
Taking charge of our lives demands taking charge of our time.

Method of Evaluation for Housing Exit

“In My Own Words” is our most accurate way to measure, understand, and know that a former resident felt that the journey with Oasis Home (our transitional home) had served her needs, and she is grateful for the experience. This is one way we evaluate housing and programming. This written page of expression by the women helps us develop our programming to fit the need. Most express that the first contact with the housing representative and the tour required before any commitment to rent is a very welcoming experience. They know by speaking with the other women living here if it is a fit. The other stand-out expression is the first workshop they attend, and the surprise and gratitude felt when they are greeted with kind neighbors, and a big sincere “Welcome” seems to be the two most important things that the women express to us. We also evaluate the productivity of their individualized plan for personal success and the attendance and participation in our events and Lyceum. To that end, we are proud to note that 75% of those transitioning through Oasis Home are by referral from former residents who benefited from our program or one of our community partners in Pierce County.
