The Oasis Wise Women program focuses on the issues of women ages 55 and older. It provides individual counseling to elderly women. In addition, Oasis hosts a twice-monthly Wise Women group at the Freedom Manor apartment community in Downtown Birmingham.

The need for the Wise Women program is great as Late-life depression affects about 6 million Americans age 65 and older, but only 10% receive treatment for depression. Older women are twice as likely as men to experience depression.

The Wise Women program:

  • reduces feelings of isolation and reduce depression in elderly women
  • offers education and information on topics such as the normal aging process
  • provides a forum for elderly women to share information about the physical, emotional, psychological, and spiritual challenges during this stage of life.

Our Mission

Oasis helps women and children heal, grow and overcome difficult life circumstances by providing affordable mental health counseling and innovative educational programs in a respectful and nurturing environment.
