The Red Shoes is a 501 c3 nonprofit organization.


In an effort to be open and inclusive, we keep our program fees low, not actually covering our expenses. Scholarships are available on an as-needed basis. Your participation helps make The Red Shoes available to everyone.  


Raising Consciousness to Create Peace

The mission of the Red Shoes is inspired by the “divine feminine,” the gentle nature of the Divine that cultivates compassion and collaboration. Our vision is to create circles of community that empower the individual, increase understanding and embrace diversity. If you believe this vision is an antidote to the violence and polarization that surrounds us, please help us continue to offer programs and invite speakers that foster these ideas. Your dollars create our budget.


Addressing Needs in the Community

We partner with many outstanding agencies in the community to broaden the work of our unique non–profit organization. Each partnership allows us to address a different need and become a resource for a growing circle of people inclusive of all faiths, cultures, ages and socio-economic groups.


There is more work to be done. Join our Circle of Giving. Join us in work that will transform individual lives, the community and the world.
