"The Red Shoes is a wonderful experience. The minute I walked through the door, I found respect, acceptance and the support I needed. I have found trust and a safe place to share ideas, observations, information and feelings. I have rediscovered my self-esteem and self-assurance among friends. At 85 and after double hip replacement, I feel more alive than ever before. I am discovering who I truly am, thanks to The Red Shoes."


- Ms. Sherry Frink

"Tell me how you crumble when you hit the wall, the place you cannot go beyond by the strength of your own will. What carries you to the other side of that wall, to the fragile beauty of your own humanness"

— Oriah Mountain Dreamer


Our founder, Roberta Guillory, turned 80 this year. The Red Shoes community is her dream: a place where, even with the challenges of life, all can discover what can carry them to “their own fragile beauty,” their “humanness.” You can help this dream endure so that we always see the faces of need and respond with compassion. Help us continue to build partnerships so the healing work we do reaches more people in 2018. Help us provide a sacred space for gifted teachers to share their wisdom. Volunteer with us and enhance our capabilities. Join with us to build this community that increases understanding and embraces diversity. Your tax-deductible gift provides experiences and retreats for people seeking hope and healing. Don’t disappoint them. Invest in a future that shows you care. Please remember, your dollars change the world.



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

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.
