Oasis Home is a Transitional Housing/Rapid Re-Housing program for youth (ages 18-24) who are pregnant or parenting and experiencing homelessness, have a history of foster care, or are survivors of trafficking, domestic violence, and sexual assault.

Oasis Home, transitional housing, consists of six beds, two shared bathrooms, a shared kitchen, and a shared living room. Cribs are available for those with babies. The Transitional Housing in San Antonio, Texas component offers crisis housing to participants for an average of 3-6 months to address urgent housing and safety needs. Project services will include case management, assessment of service needs, mental health support and connection to food, education, and employment resources. In addition, there will be a housing navigator working with each household to help identify permanent housing.

Oasis Home is staffed with direct support professionals during evenings and weekends to provide childcare, transportation, and additional support needed during off hours. Participants will be referred through the local Coordinated Entry System based on local prioritization and eligibility criteria.

After receiving the referral, each household will be offered access to the Transitional Housing component; however, if the household has other options and they are document and housing ready, they can be directly rehoused through the Rapid Rehousing component.

Program services adhere to Housing First, Trauma informed and Positive Youth Development principles. The staff will support all households in identifying affordable housing that best meets their needs and will continue to provide wrap-around supportive services to the participants after move-in until they have been stable housed and exited the program.
