St. Louis Oasis is growing
At St. Louis Oasis, we believe that opportunities to grow don’t end just because we get older. The Oasis mission to promote healthy aging through lifelong learning, active lifestyles and volunteer engagement got its start in St. Louis in 1982.
We’re proud that more than 35 years later, Oasis programs continue to enrich the lives of older adults nationwide and locally. Today, St. Louis remains the home of our national office and a community impacted by Oasis programs that empower and inspire adults to rethink the possibilities for themselves as they age.
In 2018, St. Louis Oasis has impacted the community in powerful ways, reaching more than 6,715 active participants with over 5,000 classes.
Through Oasis Intergenerational Tutoring, more than 2,000 older adults served as tutors, mentors and friends to elementary school children in local 22 school districts. Our volunteers dedicated more than 156,000 hours of service to and through Oasis.
We anticipate our impact to broaden even further, thanks to exciting expansion efforts in 2019. With support from our stakeholders, partners and friends, St. Louis Oasis has established seven new sites, allowing us to reach even more older adults in new communities with a demonstrated need for our programs.
It’s an exciting time to be growing with St. Louis Oasis!
