Build Redwood Park

Redwood Park Update

Thank you for your interest in helping to create Redwood Park for the women and children who seek refuge at The Redwood shelter! Current research has made it clear that when children experience severe trauma like family violence, there are alarming emotional, psychological, and physical impacts on their long-term health. By helping to build Redwood Park, YOU will provide children with opportunities for therapeutic play that can help them heal.

Thank You!!!!
