"I've worked for about 10 years in 15 different corporate fields. By the age of 26, I became a widow.
With no courage or passion for life, I felt stuck. At Redefin'd there is no corporate ladder to climb. The only ladder is your own personal growth and goals.
At Redefin'd slow progress is still progress. I can take a mental health day and share my story without fear of repercussions. Most jobs you don't make friends, here we connect like a family.
Redefin'd means you can ask for a hug or you can sing and someone will sing along with you. It's a redirection of the mind. A new unseen path never thought possible.
Now a year later after starting Redefin'd, confidence and compassion are staples in my life. It's more than a trauma recovery and survivor program it's a redefinition of one's life.
Why We're Different
Redefin’d is a therapeutic community for young people 18-30 who are navigating the symptoms of trauma: mental illness, addictions, homelessness and previous incarceration.
Young people participate in work projects that are hands-on and creative. This meaningful work strengthens recovery, creating a sense of self-confidence, and purpose. Participation in the community generates real-life interactions with other people and mainstream society, giving them a safe space to gradually reintegrate.
Redefin'd is an innovative solution to healing trauma, and reclaiming the potential of at-risk young people. We can nurture healthy productive adults and contributing citizens.
