A Rural Laboratory for Women's Empowerment

Redwood Women's Foundation focuses on increasing the emotional and financial stability of women from diverse socioeconomic backgrounds. Our mission is to address the unmet needs of women.

Our vision is to cultivate a safe, productive, sustainable space for women, rooted in positive words, consistency, and actions. In May 2015, we began hosting monthly empowerment workshops presented by some of the most amazing women in our community. Our workshops serve as a platform for empowering women learning, networking, and locating resources. Working collectively with diverse groups of women creates solidarity among the group, enhances our individual and collective capacities, and allows us to work together to help eliminate the socioeconomic barriers among American women in our communities. We've hosted over 50 empowerment workshops since 2015, and provided resources over 90 days of transitional space to women in 2018.

Redwood Women's Foundation, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit organization is dedicated to empowering women. Contributions are tax-deductible to the extent permitted by law.
