My association with Redwood started decades ago when my brother was enrolled in the first group of clients that the then fledging organization cared for. Redwood has always been a special place and held dear by all my family. Years after my brother began attending Redwood, my son was born with special needs. Redwood has been a godsend with programs that have addressed his needs through the years. They supplied infant stimulation programs and preshool programs when he was younger. There was summer camp for when he was school age in addition to a variety of afterschool services. Now as an adult, they continue their service to him, allowing him to function to the best of his ability. They are dedicated to taking care of the whole person regardless of age. I am not aware of too many programs where this is true. Our community has been truly blessed to have Redwood make it their home. Praise can never be too high for this organization.
