Mission and Vision
SILVER CONNECT is a program of San Antonio OASIS, a national education organization dedicated to enriching the lives of adults age 50 and over. San Antonio OASIS began in 1992 and currently has over 26,000 members. Membership to OASIS is free. You can join OASIS by registering at the Oasis Center, by phone or online. Oasis is open to all people 50 years of age and older regardless of income, gender, race, religion or background. A catalog comes out three times a year with over 500 classes; some offered at no cost; some at a nominal fee.
SILVER CONNECT is an older adult chat line. For emergencies, please dial 911. To report abuse, neglect, and exploitation, please call Adult Protective Services at 1-800-252-5400.
You do not have to feel alone. If you want or need someone to talk to, Silver Connect is here for you. Call Silver Connect today to chat with one of our volunteers!
Saturday-Sunday 9:00am-9:00pmWho We Are
As we get older, we can find ourselves with fewer regular and positive interactions with other people. Family, friends, and social connections that once brought us a sense of purpose and connection can leave us feeling empty by their loss. Whether lost through death or divorce or friends moving away, we have all felt disconnected at some point in time.
Silver Connect offers adults age 50 and above a chance to connect with friendly volunteers for emotional support, reassurance, resources, and opportunities, as well as to share life’s experiences and to feel engaged and connected through sincere, lively, heartfelt conversation.
We are also looking for volunteers for the Silver Connect program. If you are interested in reaching out with support to someone who may be lonely, we want to hear from you! You may be the person someone is looking for, and this may be just what you are looking for.
