VALLEY OASIS was incorporated in 1981 as the Antelope Valley Domestic Violence Council. In 1980, Michael D. Antonivich, Supervisor, 5th District, of Los Angeles County, created a task force to conduct a needs assessment to identify the services available for domestic violence victims.
It was quickly determined that there was a great need for a domestic violence shelter in the region and through the supervisor's efforts, along term lease was created.
In 2006, the agency celebrated 25 years of service by creating a D.B.A, changing the name to Valley Oasis. In addition to the name change the agency incorporated a logo and tag line NURTURE HEAL RENEW.
We are now going on our 33rd year of providing services to the community and have a total of 16 programs available for individuals and families in need of our specific services.
All programs of Valley Oasis provide services to the following individuals:
- Emancipated Minors
- Lesbian, Gay, Bi-sexual, Transgender and Questioning
- All Races, Socio-economic Backgrounds, and Religious Beliefs
Although the agency is a community-based organization, we assist qualified individuals throughout the United States.
The Valley Oasis Shelter began assisting male victims in 1989 and until recently, we were the only agency in the United States willing to assist male victims.
Our agency works closely with many agencies throughout the community and State to assist victims of domestic violence with specialized needs.
