For our new non-congregate domestic violence shelter

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 three phases:

Phase 1

Begins when entering the shelter. The purpose of this phase is to allow victims to become acclimated to the shelter environment.

Phase 2

Offers structured individual and group counseling services in a safe and nurturing environment to facilitate change for the individual and family.

Phase 3

Offers specialized services to enhance progress achieved during Phase I
