Executive Director, The Coffee Oasis
Dave Frederick is the Founder and Executive Director of The Coffee Oasis. The Coffee Oasis began in 1996 through the vision of Mr. Frederick and his wife, Cindy. While volunteering as a police chaplain, doing foster care, and inviting homeless individuals into their home to live, their eyes and hearts were opened to the scores of young people in Kitsap County whose lives seemed to be on a downward spiral of incarcerations, addictions, and domestic troubles. Mr. and Mrs. Frederick purchased The Coffee Oasis business to provide a drop-in place for such youth, as well as a business to support their outreach and provide job training.
Mr. Frederick now overseas four Coffee Oasis retail businesses and a coffee roasting business supporting three Oasis Drop-In Centers serving at-risk and homeless youth in three communities across Kitsap County (Bremerton, Poulsbo, and Port Orchard), with Kingston projected to have a Coffee Oasis café and Oasis Drop-In Center in 2018.
