Oasis Emergency Shelter and Famous Pies

I love this story from the Oasis Center's website. What a great asset building story about empowerment, positive identity and social competencies! And I hear that her pies are super yummy!
In 2005, Alexis Holmes left the Oasis Emergency Shelter and started a baking business that generates revenue to help support youth in the same shelter that helped her to this very day.

Alexis is taking orders for Holiday Pies and Treats, to place an order or to find out more about Alexis and Her Famous Pies email bugsact@gmail.com.
