Our mandate is to empower, educate and support youth and their parents and/or guardians to better cope with the ongoing and complex needs of the youth. Following are the programs that Wood's Homes offers here.

Emergency Youth Shelter

Lethbridge Youth Shelter

This 8-bed facility provides youth under the age of 18 with a bed, laundry facilities, showers, clothing and crisis counselling. Youth receive breakfast, a bagged lunch and a hot dinner. There are two professional staff members on duty at all times. At the time of intake, a staff member speaks with the youth's guardian and/or the on-call duty worker to inform him or her of the youth’s whereabouts.

Young people can work with staff to find a place to stay and will be given information on appropriate community resources. Staff will also work with the youth to help him or her find employment and housing and to learn independent living skills.

Shelter hours are 5 p.m. to 8:30 a.m. every day of the year.

Maximum stay is 15 consecutive days.

Referral sources can be from anyone, including the youth, and are accepted on a 24-hour basis.
