Retreat to the Redwood Forest

Tan Oak Park, a Place of Peace

Summer 2002

Imagine a vast and beautiful forest dedicated forever to those that have lived with HIV/AIDS. A nature retreat and park for relaxation, stress reduction and community support in the midst of the dramatic consequences of HIV.

Welcome and Enjoy

Tan Oak Park, is a serene and restful place surrounded by scenic views.

Families and Friends United by AIDS was organized in 1990 to provide services by and for those impacted by AIDS/HIV.

We operate an historic Auto Park in Northern Mendocino County. Here in a peaceful supportive atmosphere, we offer to individuals and their partners the opportunity to rest, relax, plan and educate in a very safe haven.

Historic cottages and log cabins can be used for single, double, or family occupancy. The campground has bathrooms with hot showers. There are a limited number of hookups for recreational vehicles.

For individual and small group use, we are outfitting a communal kitchen with dining and meeting areas. Also offered is complete food service from our commercial kitchen for your convenience.

How to Utilize Our Park

HIV/AIDS-affected individuals with referrals please contact us for availability. When needed, as fundraising allows, we provide stipends to low-income individuals so they can travel to and use our facilities.
