The Oasis has one full-time staff manager and a team of dedicated volunteers to greet visitors, clean showers, and manage laundry for clients. The Oasis needs both general volunteers and also licensed cosmetologists to provide haircuts.
Travel-size toiletries are distributed to guests free of charge. Other supplies are needed to operate the center including laundry detergent, bleach, vinegar, flip-flops, coffee, and gloves.
Since October 2011, the Oasis has been providing services to the homeless in our community, regardless of "where they slept last night." The Oasis is a one-of-a-kind facility in Seminole County for homeless hygiene and respite services and was built and sponsored by Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Lake Mary, Florida.
