I have been a member of Redwood's Strategic Planning Committee for four years and a member of its Board of Overseers for more than a year. Redwood staff and volunteers are among the most committed and passionate people I have ever worked with. They take their mission very seriously, pay attention to detail, and work tirelessly to discover and meet the needs of every client and family. They are good stewards of the resources provided to them by donors and funders. I feel privileged to be associated with Redwood.

A wonderful coordination of three organizations came together last winter to give help to those less fortunate. Our Lakeside Christian Church Singles Group came to Redwood Rehabilitation Cehter to volunteer time with winter prep of their landscaping. As we were talking about other volunteer activites of the Singles group, the Outreach Coordinator of Redwood lit up with interest at the request of our need for coats for our coat drive. Redwood DOUBLED our number of coats we gave away through an organization called Shoulder to Shoulder! Redwood students and staff were so woderful in collecting coats. What a way to show true community - help given, help received! -Maryah Miller

If this organization had 10 million bucks, it could...

impact a wide range of people that have disabilities and would be a larger influence in enabling those with any limitations to reach further.

nothing comes to mind.

In my opinion, the biggest challenges facing this organization are...

matching the skills of Redwood to the community and volunteer/donations to Redwood.

One thing I'd also say is that...

As a parent of a client served, as well as a professional with expertise in this field, I would not have my daughter attending any other agency. She is well cared for, happy, and is very a productive member of the community. The staff is well educated and their goal for each client is for the greatest growth of each.

My daughter, Natasha, has been attending Redwood for over five years now. She dearly loves "going to work." Her days consist of working on the computer to sharpen her skills, which have progressed a great deal. She has made many friends and learned to interact with others, also well as gaining a great deal of independence. The staff at Redwood are remarkable, becoming family, not just workers. Natasha and I have only lived in the area for close to six years. Finding a day program was a major concern for me with our move. We toured several different facilities but knew we had found the perfect place with Redwood. If it were not for Redwood, I couldn't attend nursing school. Even on my days off, it allow me to have time to rest and recharge. Not only has Redwood been of benefit for Natasha but I've also made several wonderful friends. I am so thankful to each and everyone there. The dedication to their clients is remarkable.
