Redoma translates to "roundabout" in Spanish.
And "roundabout" can be defined as;
•not following a short direct route.
•a road junction at which traffic moves in one direction around a central island to reach one of the roads converging on it; a traffic circle.
•a large revolving device in a playground, for children to ride on; a merry-go-round.
At Redoma, we are going in a roundabout way to create a place of our own, to meet an underserved need in the Autism and Neurodiversity community.
We are creating a gathering place, a road junction, and a center where a community of dedicated families, entrepreneurs, funders, and experts will collaborate to provide care and day services and support for young adults with autism, and intellectual and developmental disabilities.
As parents, we all want to offer our children a safe nurturing environment surrounded by caring family, neighbors, friends, and community. A place where people look out for and support each other. A place where our loved ones can exist, develop and grow to live in peace and harmony.
I was fortunate to grow up in such a place as a child. In a neighborhood called “Las Acacias”, at the end of a street, on top of a hill, there were nine families, and nine homes surrounding a roundabout, we refer to it as “La Redoma”.
La Redoma where I grew up is my inspiration as I envision a place for my son and his peers to grow and develop as adults in the autism spectrum.
My goal is to create and provide a Redoma of their own.
I humbly ask for your help and support to make Redoma a reality.
