Are You Sticking to Your New Year’s Resolution?

2019-01-18T15:43:55+00:00January 18th, 2019|Categories: Oaks Blog, Featured|

On January 1, so many of us kick off the year feeling full of energy, determination and motivation. Maybe you decided to join a gym, start meditating, throw out that bag of chips in your pantry, vow to stop smoking or even sign up for yoga classes. But now as the month moves along and reality sets in, millions of us will fail to achieve our New Year's resolution goals. You are not alone. In fact, over 80% of people who make New Year’s resolutions fail to achieve them. When we strive to reach unrealistic goals, we ultimately set ourselves up for failure. This sense of failure can have a negative impact on our overall mental and physical health [...]

Share the Joy: Tom and Amber’s Story

2018-12-04T20:24:35+00:00December 4th, 2018|Categories: Oaks Blog, Featured|

This holiday season, while many of us spend time celebrating with loved ones and finishing up last minute shopping, others face much bigger challenges. You can make an impact by giving a monetary contribution, providing gifts or sponsoring a family in need. Share the joy! Just imagine the wonderful memories your donation will bring to those who need it the most... Tom lost custody of his 7-year-old daughter Amber due to his chronic drug abuse. Heartbroken and despondent, he felt without hope until a case worker in an Oaks parenting class reminded him that although he felt at the lowest point in his life, it did not make him a bad person or father. Parenting classes helped Tom think [...]
