Oasis for Girls in San Francisco's SoMa

For seven years, Oasis for Girls has provided a haven for girls and young women - ages 10 to 20 - in San Francisco's South of Market Area.

With its after-school and community programs, Oasis provides a place for girls to discover and develop their strengths, dabble in the arts, learn life skills or simply take a personal moment along the journey to womanhood.

Founded in an area that has become a home to many Filipino newcomers, Oasis now serves girls and young women from SoMa, several San Francisco neighborhoods, Oakland and Daly City.
Oasis for Girls' Executive Director Rachel Paredes Paras talks to Deputy Managing Editor Leslie Guevarra about how the organization has made a difference.
