To provide basic necessities to needy students in Hillsborough County public schools.
OASIS provides basic necessities to needy students through 190 school social workers
Items provided include: gently used clothing, new uniforms, socks & underwear, shoes, hygiene items, alarm clocks, and school supplies
4 full-size warehouse facilities serving homeless students
The acronym OASIS stands for Outreach Assisting Students In Schools. This non-profit organization was specifically developed as a unique and effective way of directly distributing donations of children's personal items to our county's most needy public school children. Direct communication and cooperation with school based social workers and other school representatives make this effort possible.
The OASIS Network brings these entities together to form a unique partnership, one that truly benefits children that would otherwise receive little support from outside sources.
