The Oasis Alliance Pay It Forward

Pay It Forward: The Oasis Alliance

An organization helps those healing from trauma by transforming interior spaces. The CEO and founder, Danielle, created The Oasis Alliance in 2018 and described it as a combination of art, design, and social work. Community-based partners refer clients needing a space makeover and co-create the spaces together so they can be involved in making decisions. On the day of the transformation, the clients are surprised with their new space after volunteers finish putting it together.

Sierra, a victim of domestic violence who came to the DC area through the foster care system, expressed that them transforming her space gave her hope and encouraged her. When she saw the space, she was overwhelmed with tears of joy.

Amazed by the excellent work the Oasis Alliance is doing to help trauma survivors Joel Bassam of Easterns Automotive Group joined in, surprising them with $2200! The founder, Danielle, was filled with joy and shared that it would help cover a few months of storage and could even cover the cost of an installation.
