What We Do

The Redwood offers safety, healing and opportunities for growth for women and their children fleeing abuse. Families receive case management and counseling services from Resident Services Counselors, access to empowering and life-changing programs, and transitional support when they are ready to take the steps toward a new life.

Free from fear. Free from threat.


“Other women and their children started calling me ‘Grandma’, which made me happy and proud. I would love to sit in the TV room, surrounded by children who also gave love back to me. I was able to fulfill my wish to be part of a family, no longer isolated, as my only contact with family was sporadic calls.”

– Former Redwood Resident
