We are a mental health centre that provides treatment and support for children, young people, adults and families with mental health challenges. We are a non-profit organization and have been working with families since 1914.
Our 600+ staff, foster parents and caregivers provide more than 40 programs and services in Calgary, Lethbridge, Strathmore and Fort McMurray, Grande Prairie, Cold Lake, and Lac La Biche. We are grateful to the hundreds of volunteers who provide support through their time, energy and resources.
Wood’s Homes is nationally recognized as a knowledge and training centre. We are accredited by Accreditation Canada which has awarded our organization Exemplary Standing four times in a row!
We understand and appreciate that every child and family has unique needs when it comes to treating mental health issues. Keeping families together is a priority for Wood’s Homes – we take a family-centred approach in each of our 40+ programs. Our services are divided into six pillars – each one with several different programs and services.
The Youth Culinary Arts Program Market is a social enterprise of Wood’s Homes. The Market employs students of the Youth Culinary Arts Program, and features the food they make under the guidance of a Red Seal chef. The students learn important life and employment skills while working at the Market. You will find the YCAP Market at our Inglewood Opportunity Hub at 1008 14 St. S.E. in Calgary.
