In Their Words
"Our family became a part of the Redwood community in 2012. My son Winston had just been diagnosed with autism spectrum disorder when he was only two and a half years old. The specialist at Children’s Hospital told us we were fortunate to receive an early diagnosis, however Winston would need intensive long-term speech and occupational therapy. Without thinking twice, the next day I made the call to Redwood. A few days later, Peggy Farmer was sitting in my kitchen explaining to me what Redwood could do for my son. Seven years later in counting, Winston has made amazing progress. When Winston began coming to Redwood, he was completely nonverbal. Today he is an expressive and articulate nine-year-old. He is reading at grade level, he is an excellent speller, he received a bronze medal for testing scored from his efforts while taking the 2017-2018 pretest at his elementary school. He is also a member of the school’s bowling team and is currently on the B honor roll. This has all been made possible by the hard work of dedicated individuals and amazing services Redwood has provided throughout the years."
Our nonprofit organization is proudly partnered with and accredited by these institutions in recognition of our mission to continually provide excellent service and care.

Uniqueness is Power
Since our beginnings, uniqueness has been part of Redwood’s DNA. So much of what makes us extraordinary is the diversity of our clients, staff and volunteers, reflecting a range of developmental and intellectual abilities, ages, and financial means.
But we think we can do even better. We’re more committed than ever to taking an expansive view of diversity – one that encourages, supports, and celebrates the unique characteristics and perspectives each person brings to Redwood. We celebrate and welcome people of all races, ethnicities, sexual orientations, and abilities.
