Frightened. Isolated. Trapped. Depressed. Confused. Helpless.

At The Redwood, we’ve heard these words so often. Every story is the same, yet every story is different. 

Does your partner hit you or your children? Force you to have sex? Threaten you or prevent you from seeing family and friends? Destroy your property? Threaten to take your children or have you deported? 

If this sounds like home, we can help. 

The Way Out.

Leaving an abusive situation is one of the toughest things you’ll ever have to face. 
How will you look after small children? Where will you find affordable housing? If you’re new to Canada, how will you find support in an unfamiliar environment? 

You’ll find the answers at The Redwood. We offer: 

  • A safe free refuge 24 hours of the day
  • Services in your language
  • Telephone counseling
  • Counseling for you and your children
  • Housing support services
  • Referral to subsidized daycare and school registration
  • Job readiness training and employment counselling
  • Legal support in immigration, family law and legal aid
  • Referral and advocacy to gain access to ESL, healthcare and other services
  • At The Redwood, thousands of women and children found the way out – and the way up. You can too.
