Red Lodge Transition Center for Native American
Indiegogo CampaignRed Lodge Transition Center for Women
Red Lodge Transition Services purchased property for the Transition Center for Women. Located just outside the Oregon City limits on 2.69 acres of land, the center will provide a place of healing and renewal for 10 – 12 women. The house is a solid structure but needs updates—electric, lighting, kitchen, front porch, heating, roof, flooring and ADA accessibility.
 
Using various social media platforms, Facebook, our website, and now INDIEGOGO, Red Lodge hopes to raise $40,000 in the next three months to help fund the new Red Lodge Transition Center for Women.
 
We are offering “Auntie Tawna’s Fry Bread Mix” as your PERK for your gift to the Indiegogo Raise the Red Lodge! campaign. As a bonus, if you make your donation now, you will receive a half pint of huckleberry jam.


Help Red Lodge Go Green!

The house was built in 1975 and was purchase ‘As Is’. It sits on 2.69 acres with almost 2 acres in mature timber providing a calm wholesome environment for our women’s program. Ducks, blue heron and other animals are visible from the front view of the house during the winter months as Beaver Creek overflows and becomes a wildlife refuge that is mesmerizing.
 
This moderately sized single family home is a solid structure capable of expanding in size. We are in the process of addressing the house modifications needed to sustain 8 to 12 women at a time as well as issues in regard to permits, commercial code and sustainability.

The house is ‘all electric’ and is wired for a single family. The house was built in 1975 and electrically is outdated for the demands of 10 women getting ready in the morning. Addressing energy consumption is at the forefront of sustainability. Red Lodge received recommendations from all the specialty trades in regard to the electric and energy efficiently options for the house. It is imperative we bring the house up to code and functionality. For the size of the house and the number of women living at the center, our energy needs to far beyond a single family home. After discussing all options and requirements, the Board of Directors determined solar power is our best option!
 
Solar power aligns with our mission, vision and values. Native American people are natural conservationists. Our traditions teach us never take more than what we need, and to be mindful of the earth. Solar power, new windows, doors, insulation, furnace, heat pump and hybrid hot water heaters can be installed at the Red Lodge Transition Center for Women. These improvements and upgrades will reduce our electric consumption, lower our carbon footprint by up to 90% and save the program thousands of dollars per year!
