Our Programs

Youth Oasis operates three programs that provide support services for at-risk youth and young adults. These programs aim to break the cycle of homelessness in our community and in turn, throughout our state.


Foster Center

Provides shelter, food, clothing, counseling and healthcare referrals for foster youth ages 10-17. The goal of this program is to reunite young people with their families or locate appropriate alternative placements.

Transitional Living Program

Serving foster youth and juvenile offenders ages 16-21, this program is designed to help participants transition out of care and into adult life. Residents of the center receive career and life-skills training, counseling, intensive case management, and GED assistance.

Diversity House

Geared towards the specific needs of homeless and at-risk LGBTQ+ individuals, residents of the center pay a minimum amount in rent and utilities and receive: career and life-skills training, counseling, case management, GED assistance, and an affirming, safe environment for any and all young adults ages 18-24.


...but this is only 1.5% of Louisiana’s youth that live apart from their families because of abuse or neglect. Your support helps us expand our programs and carry out our mission.
