Oasis Center, a Nashville-based agency that helps youth transition into adulthood, was one of 16 nonprofits to receive a national grant from Gannett’s A Community Thrives program. President and CEO Mark Dunkerley said the $50,000 grant will allow Oasis Center to hire an additional counselor for the organization’s Just Communities Project, impacting as many as 45 youth that identify as LGBTQ. “We provide free counseling to all our young people. And that
funding for mental health support is just harder to come by,” Dunkerley said.
