About Youth Oasis...

Youth Oasis is a local, non-profit organization located in Mid-City Baton Rouge on South Acadian Thruway (conveniently located near the Baton Rouge General Medical Center’s Mid-City Campus). Through our programming, we provide necessary support services to runaway, abandoned, and homeless youth and assist them in transitioning back into the community in a positive role. Many of the youth we serve are escaping abuse (physical, sexual and/or emotional), substance abuse or exploitation within their home environment. Some are trying to find a healthier path for their future than the one they are currently on. All are trying to find ways to fit into their community and achieve a nurturing environment and lead a healthy, positive life.

About K.I.D.S....

Started by a group of young professionals who wanted to make a difference in our community, K.I.D.S. was founded on the basic principal of Karing Is Doing Something. K.I.D.S. is a nonprofit organization geared to helping and supporting under privileged children and teens in the Greater Baton Rouge area. Many of life’s paths are carved during childhood. Moreover, research has shown that the difference between success and failure in a person's life can be affected by the presence of positive intervention during childhood. K.I.D.S is committed to the positive intervention needed in children’s lives in hopes to provide a platform for their future. We want to provide the underprivileged children with opportunities to reach their full potential in life. We want to make a difference in children’s lives by increasing their confidence, self-esteem and purpose in life. Every aspect of the K.I.D.S. organization will assist, in one way or another, children; ultimately leading to a better tomorrow for all. K.I.D.S. is a 501(c)(3) organization, meaning that your donations are tax deductible under the full amount as allowed by the IRS.
