Who We Are
Oasis Youth Care was created to meet the needs of young people who have faced a difficult start to life and are missing a stable, supportive foundation of ‘HOME & FAMILY’ to succeed into adulthood.
Called out by Isaiah 58:12, Grace Udodong followed a deep passion to create a safe haven where young people needing support can access the help they need to stabilize, thrive and become valuable community builders.
The first Oasis opened its doors in 2020 and has served many youths and their families in the Halton Region of Ontario offering transitional housing, life skills training, and mentoring support.
Every community needs a Youth Oasis
To create a safe haven for vulnerable young people at risk of homelessness by providing transitional housing and wellbeing-focused support services,
in the spirit of Matthew 25:35-40
A community where young people build the capabilities they need to overcome barriers and become valuable members of society.
How We Stand Out
We engage the Foyer Model of housing to offer a real HOME and care about the holistic well-being of young people.
All youth receive individualized programming, goal setting, and 1:1 support from dedicated staff.
Service is delivered with culturally responsive competence.
Evidence-based programming that delivers sustainable outcomes.
We work in collaboration with available community resources to help youth successfully access opportunities.
We commit to developing relationships that embrace our community in strength and collaboration. Our dedication is to the young people we serve and to the partners who help us succeed with the work we do.
We commit to pursue honourable initiatives and be good stewards of resources entrusted to us. We will conduct the operations of our program in ways that are honest, transparent, and ethical.
We commit to demonstrate that we have and will continue to build the skills and competence needed to accomplish our mission and to do so with outstanding standards.
Our aim is to provide effective services that lead to lasting impact and transformative change, nurturing a brighter future for all.
Did you know?
Halton Region Youth In/At Risk Research Report indicated growing incidences of youth homelessness in the Halton Region, but it is the kind of homelessness that have youth sleeping in cars, backyard tents, couch-surfing, and not on the streets. Therefore, hidden and not immediately visible to the public eye.
