OASIS, Inc.  (Opposing Abuse with Service, Information and Shelter) is a private, non-profit volunteer organization that has been serving victims of domestic violence and sexual assault in Watauga County since 1978. OASIS provides: a 24-hour crisis line (262-5035), free and confidential shelter for victims and their children, short-term crisis intervention, advocacy and support through medical and legal processes, information and referral, support groups for survivors of domestic violence and sexual assault, educational programs for schools, community organizations and professional groups.

OASIS is seeking community members, and college and graduate students to become crisis line volunteers.  The crisis line plays a critical role in our mission to create a community free from domestic violence and sexual assault.  Volunteers will have the opportunity to answer crisis calls from their homes once or twice a month.  Volunteers are scheduled for evening hours and weekends only.  No prior experience is necessary – we need compassionate and caring men and women who want to be part of the work in creating a safer community. 

All candidates must complete an 18-hour training program in order to be prepared to answer OASIS crisis calls.  The training will be September 21-23.  There is a $15.00 fee for training materials.  For more information or to set up an interview, please email Jeanie Futrelle at This e-mail address is being protected from spambots.
