Redwood Family Center
Redwood Family Center is uniquely able to provide crucial housing and recovery services while also creating relationships in the recovery community for the women and children that we serve. We partner with those with a passion for recovery whether it is private individuals, the faith-based community or government agencies to make recovery costs effective and to ensure that we do not duplicate services. The results are transformed lives and reunited families. Women and children find a safe place to heal and grow together here at Redwood Family Center!
Redwood Family Center provides a faith-based clean and sober living environment for women and women with children in order to equip themselves with the life skills necessary to become self-supporting members of society.
We envision a community where individuals seeking recovery and their families have the opportunity and services to live a drug-free and productive future. We are committed to providing recovery resources through collaborative relationships in the recovery community while the women and children at Redwood Family Center remain in a safe clean and sober living environment. The results are lives that are transformed and families that are reunited.
Redwood Development Director
Virginia has been connected to Redwood Family Center ever since she went through the front doors as a client. God called her out of the cycles of substance use and abusive relationships and into His loving arms, where she has remained clean and sober by His Grace since March of 2008. Her lived experience offers a unique perspective that she brings to her work and the women who need the services that are provided there. She can advocate for them in a greater capacity because of her intimate knowledge of the struggles they face.
Virginia is an alumnus of both Modesto Junior College and California State University, Stanislaus, and is currently finishing up graduate school at California State University, Stanislaus to achieve a Master of Public Administration degree. She has helped women navigate the system in various roles from legal advocate to parent advocate, substance use liaison and homeless outreach specialist, to name a few.
Her passion is to support the women who come through their doors looking for a new way to live. She looks forward to working with you to further support the much-needed work of Redwood Family Center.
