Vision, Mission and Core Values


The Redwood envisions a world where women and children live free from abuse and all other forms of violence and oppression.


The Redwood provides programs and services to support women and children to live and thrive without abuse, homelessness and poverty. We work for social change through learning, collaboration and advocacy.

Core Values


All women have the right to establish the direction of their lives and the lives of their children.

Anti-Racism and Anti-Oppression:

We are actively engaged in removing barriers that limit access within our organization and in our communities. 

Social Justice:

We take action as allies and advocates for social change that goes beyond supporting individual women and children fleeing abuse, to dismantle the inequity that exists at every level of our society.

Who We Serve

Guided by our values of self-determination, anti-racism and anti-oppression, The Redwood provides services inclusive to all women and their children, trans, and gender-diverse individuals who are disproportionately impacted by gender-based violence.

The Redwood is also committed to providing education to individuals of all genders including cis-gendered men, who wish to work together to end gender-based violence.
