The Oasis oragnization was established in 2018. Our mission is to create accessible and culturally sensitive mental health resources and services targeted specifically towards African American communities. We collaborate with local community leaders, therapists, and organizations in hopes to provide free or affordable therapy sessions, support groups, and educational workshops that address the unique challenges faced by people within the African American community. On top of that, we strive to erode stigma by organizing empowerment events that celebrate resilience and success stories within the community. By embracing diversity in mental health services, we can ensure there are culturally competent and inclusive practitioners who understand the needs and complex experiences of peoples from different backgrounds and walks of life. Through these efforts, Oasis strives to create an inclusive space where everyone can feel heard, understood, and supported on their mental health journeys or just life in general. 

Sahara Desert


I know what you're thinking... 

"Why the name 'Oasis'?" 


Imagine being lost in a blazing hot, unending desert. You're tired and dehydrated and you on the verge of surrendering to the elements when you come across a secluded oasis with plenty of water and food, and shelter from the heat. That's what we aspire to be; your own refuge to refresh yourself so you can continue your journey through life. 

Everyone's journey is different and we want to be apart of yours.

For Bev

Losing a parent is something no one prepares you for. Honestly, it changed me. I have learned so much about the woman my mother was and the woman I am becoming. Her presence on this Earth helped so many people in ways she couldn’t have imagined. She was a mom but she was so much more. Beverly Loleatta Melvin was a dreamer, a healer, an artist, a writer, a gardener, a fighter and, still, human. Thank you for everything, Mom.
