we are OASIS

Since its establishment as a non-profit organization in 1984, OASIS has played a pivotal role in serving seniors in Northern Santa Barbara County. OASIS, which stands for “Orcutt Area Seniors In Service,” was founded by local seniors who were driven by a shared commitment to serving their community, supporting and uplifting their fellow community members in their golden years.


Over the past 39 years, OASIS has evolved into a beloved and essential institution for local adults, providing them with a welcoming and nurturing environment. It has become a home away from home, offering fellowship, service opportunities, personal growth, and development. The organization is primarily volunteer-driven, with members actively engaged in giving back to their community.

We do fun stuff!

At OASIS, we believe in the power of exploration, connection, and staying active, no matter your age! That’s why we are thrilled to be able to go on these day trips designed to provide you with unforgettable experiences, opportunities to socialize, and engage in thrilling adventures. Join us as we venture out into the world and make lasting memories together!
