Over the years, Wood’s Homes began looking for a way to provide stable, supportive housing for young adults (ages 18-24) who are at risk of being homeless. In 2010, we launched New Horizon, in partnership with Horizon Housing Society and the Calgary Homeless Foundation.
Twelve, one-bedroom apartment units are now occupied in a subsidized building, located in Calgary’s Fairview community. Young adults are able to live here (in furnished apartments, thanks to generous corporate support) for 6 months to 2 years.
Young people are selected for this program on the basis of their hard work, dedication and hunger to build better lives for themselves. Wood’s Homes staff are on site every day to teach these young people how to budget their money, shop for groceries, cook and clean, set up bank accounts, and how to find and keep jobs.
