Clean and Sober Living
Many of the women and their children we serve have nowhere else to go, Redwood Family Center offers them hope for recovery and a transformed life through clean and sober living. We are committed to providing recovery resources so that women and children are not left out on the street, but we can’t do it alone! As a 501(C)(3) non-profit organization, Redwood Family Center relies on individual and corporate donors. We hope you will join us as we work to achieve our vision of profoundly changing lives, healing families and restoring our community through recovery.
Redwood Family Center staff are experienced advocates providing assistance to community members whose lives are broken by the effects of alcohol and drug abuse and dependence. As advocates, the staff is trained and familiar with current information and experience related to the development of alcohol and drug abuse and dependence and the impact this has on the family and our community. Advocates understand the alcohol and drug treatment system in our community, are familiar with family court, Stanislaus County social services, Stanislaus County mental health services, Stanislaus County drug and alcohol services and the community resources available directed toward recovery and life transformation. Advocacy at Redwood Family Center includes smooth transitional assistance into clean and sober living at Redwood Family Center from referring partners and support, information and referral to our partner service agencies.
Redwood Family Center California site was established in 2003. The need for housing and support services specific to the needs of homeless women and children was evident. Community members who saw the need got together and in January 2003, under Inter-Faith Ministries, Redwood Family Center opened its doors with a mission to serve 50 women and their children providing clean and sober living to residents who would otherwise be homeless. Start-up costs for the facility were generously donated by community members and organizations, such as Foster Farms, the United Way and Stanislaus County.
The Redwood Family Center-Corson site opened in 2013 under the mission and vision of Valley Recovery Resources. The Redwood Family Center-Corson site was established in response to the overwhelming need in Stanislaus County for additional housing for women with children, beyond that which the Redwood Family Center-California site was able to provide. The Redwood Family Center-Corson site houses 25 women and their children who would otherwise be homeless and lack access to necessary recovery resources in Stanislaus County.
