Good Shepherd Sisters Advocacy

Sr. Maureen,

of Oasis On Call

Servants of the Immaculate Heart of Mary “empower others to empower themselves” by walking side-by-side as each person tries to meet their most pressing needs.  The Sisters and Good Shepherd Affiliates connect women of  all backgrounds with the services and programs available and empower them   to get the help they need with confidence to achieve their goals.

Oasis on Call focuses on women transitioning from jail or prison back into society.

Through our advocacy efforts, we:

  • Help provide for basic needs like housing, food, clothing, and financial education
  • Meet with potential employers to discuss job opportunities for women transitioning from prison and prepare women for employment
  • Accompany women as they apply for Social Services and government programs
  • Offer faith sharing and Bible sharing groups
