The word L.I.F.E. in the Oasis’ name stands for Living in Freedom and Excellence.
As Elim’s 501c3, not-for-profit entity, that is the purpose of the Center. We pursue new and exciting avenues to provide opportunities to reach the community where they are and draw them into experience Christ’s love.
The Oasis has been blessed to participate in various programs that have changed the lives of many people in the Parkland community and the city at large:
- Y.E.S. (Youth Entertainment Studios), a national organization whose mission is to “Empowering inner-city youth to become leaders of character, vision and action in their communities by challenging their creativity and equipping them with practical, confidence-building media production and marketing skills.”
- Youth Summer Camp: Working with urban teens to encourage learning and ethics
The Oasis House: To provide temporary housing for people in transition.
Be on the lookout for more exciting things to come from the Oasis.
