Shelter & Recovery


Recovery is Possible

OASIS women’s shelter is a Domestic Violence Program for battered women and their dependent children.  OASIS addresses the unique needs of victims of domestic violence trapped in the cycle of violence.

Located in Owensboro, Kentucky, and built on the “Empowerment Model”,  OASIS provides a safe place for women and their children to escape the trauma and devastation of domestic violence.


The program is divided into four phases:

Phase 1

This phase is for individuals to come out of their crisis situations and become acclimated to the shelter environment.  During this phase, basic needs are met.

Phase 2

For women and their children fleeing an abusive environment.  We offer structured individual and group work in a safe and nurturing environment to facilitate change for the individual and family.

Phase 3

Specialized services to enhance the progress achieved during Phase ⅼ.


Phase 4

The goal of the Aftercare Phase is to provide the opportunity and resources to maintain family self-sufficiency through personal responsibility.

A vital link for victims in the community to access services offered by OASIS and others.
