The Redwood

Location: Toronto,
Ontario

Since 1993, we’ve been here to help women and children live free from domestic violence. Free from fear. Free from threat.

Leaving an abusive situation is one of the toughest things any woman or child has to face. The Redwood provides the emotional, practical and social support that families need to get their lives back on track – we offer free and confidential services in 170 different languages, including:
– Programs that help children and youth rebuild their self-esteem, and break the cycle of violence through art and play therapy, counselling, and after-school tutoring.
– On-going support to help women build confidence and self-reliance through employment readiness training, assistance in finding affordable housing, and opportunities to pursue post-secondary education.
– Assistance to women and children trapped in an abusive home through outreach visits and educational workshops at local schools, libraries, housing co-ops, churches, mosques, and other community gathering places.

Over 80% of the women leaving The Redwood do not return to their abusive partners. At The Redwood, thousands of women and children found the way out.
