Thank you so much for taking the time to learn more about Oasis and the work we do here. We take pride in the individualized programs and services we provide to our students. Like an oasis in a desert, we purpose to bring hope to families living with autism spectrum disorder.
My cousin Hailey has autism. As a young girl I watched how her condition affected not just her, but her entire family. I will never forget the exact moment at the age of 9 when my heart was broken for people who are unique in this way. It was then that I began my journey to create an oasis for children who are genuinely different though made by the Lord’s great design.
But He can also turn a barren wilderness into an oasis with water! He can make springs flow into desert lands.
