With support from The Redwood, Becky found strength after the storm.


I want every woman and child who has suffered abuse to feel what it feels like to ‘shine bright’ again; to find that vitality within them and truly let it shine. I want them to know that their options are limitless, and that they can have all the joy and happiness imaginable. The Redwood makes all of this possible.
