Oaks Indian Mission
Called an "Oasis of Grace" and located in the heart of the Cherokee Nation, we care for abused, abandoned or neglected Native American children. Our mission is to provide children in need with a safe and stable environment to grow and mature in God's love, learning qualities and building character that will help them lead and serve for others and their futures.

What We Do
Here at Oaks Indian Mission, we serve children from ages 4-18 from a multitude of tribal backgrounds. In 2013, we served 12+ different tribes. Children come to Oaks by placement of families or legal guardians, tribes, courts or DHS. We are licensed to house 58 children in home-like cottages where they receive love, food, shelter, clothing and guidance. Children will attend school at Oaks Mission Public School.
The Oaks Indian Mission is proud of the many services that are provided to our Native children. Like our mission statement says above, we want our children to be prepared! Our staff use several tools in creating paths for the children.
