How to Help

Oasis Social Ministry relies on the various donations made by individuals and organizations. Without their help, we would not be able to provide these services to our local community. In whatever capacity you can, Oasis is grateful for your donation.


Oasis Social Ministry accepts one-time donations through our PayPal account. If you would like to make a monthly donation, take a look at our Angels and Friends program.

Friends and Angels

The Friends and Angels Program makes it possible to reach more individuals and families in dire need. A contributor who pledges $25 or more per month for one-year signs up as an Angel, while a Friend pledges any dollar amount for that period.

PayPal - The safer, easier way to pay online!

Amazon Smile

Oasis is proud to take part in the Amazon Smile program. When you shop at, Amazon donates 0.5% of eligible purchases to our organization—no fees, no extra cost.

Donate Food, Clothes, and Necessities

In addition to monetary donations, we are always in need of physical donations in the form of food, clothing, and hygiene items donations. We accept donations Monday- Friday between the hours of 8 am and 1 pm.

We are always looking for food pantry donations—particularly during the summer months when homelessness and marginalized communities are struck the hardest. If you are interested in donating, please read through our most needed items and consider donating them.

Donate Your Time

Because Oasis Social Ministry is predominantly a volunteer organization in Portsmouth, VA, we are always looking for new volunteers to join our team. So, if you are interested in local volunteer opportunities, consider working with us!

All volunteers must fill out our volunteer application form and participate in volunteer training. Similarly, court-ordered community service volunteers will need to speak with our intake specialist prior to their volunteer time.
