Ericka Vargas

My name is Ericka Vargas I have been the Program Supervisor at the Oasis Clubhouse for 2 years. The Oasis Clubhouse serves Transitional Age Youth (ages 16-25) who are experiencing and/or recovering from serious mental illness. Youth participating in the program have been in the foster care system, incarcerated or involved in the legal system, have been in crisis centers or County Mental Health, or other social services programs within San Diego County. The member-run clubhouse is open Monday-Friday from 9:00am to 5:30pm and is contracted to serve approximately 375 TAY annually. Oasis offers an array of therapeutic groups and activities each day. Oasis specializes in assisting members in maximizing their recovery by increasing their rehabilitation and social skills, reducing social isolation, identifying areas of interest ( personal, cultural, vocational, intellectual and recreational) increasing independent functioning, increasing employment and education, and improving quality of life.
