Redwood Family Center operates two graduate houses in Stanislaus County for up to 12 women and their children. These locations are in a residential setting. This allows the family to acclimate back into a home-like environment so that they can continue to work on their recovery and sustain their family and life beyond clean and sober living. Women continue to work with a case manager, focusing on goals, employment, and housing. In this phase of the programming, clients are expected to participate in vocational training through our client staffed Thrift Store.
