The Oasis faces financial shortfalls nearly every year. It costs about $300,000 every year to keep things running.
The shelter has been providing relief and basic necessities to Macon County's homeless for nearly 15-years. It's open from 7 am - 5 pm, seven days a week.
The money will mostly cover the salaries of the eight full-time employees who are mental health professionals. Program coordinator, Nancy Rude, is not sure yet whether the funding will be continued after next year or not.
