Welcome to Wood's Homes.
Wood’s Homes is a multi-service non-profit children’s mental health organization. We have been working with families for over 100 years.
Close to 500 staff and 100 volunteers provide 40+ programs and services for children, teens, young adults and their families each year in Calgary, Lethbridge, Strathmore and Fort McMurray.
No problem is too big or too small. We are here to help. Always.
I have had the pleasure of working at Wood’s Homes for over nine years, first as the Director of Fund Development, and then more recently as Philanthropy Advisor. And now as I retire from my career in fundraising, I have been reflecting on what I have accomplished the last 40 years. Without question, working at Wood’s Homes has been a highlight for me.
Kinga and I have had the esteemed opportunity in attending and supporting a variety of local fundraising efforts over the past decade or so. We have found that during that time, while we have been living, working and raising a family in our community, Wood’s Homes has become an increasingly special place that we have come to call our own. After we became aware of all of the services that Wood’s provides, it truly hit home with us – raising three children of our own, we always knew that we hoped they didn’t need the services of Wood’s Homes, but rested in the comfort of knowing Wood’s is there.
March is Social Work month in Canada.
When I left university two years ago with a political science degree, I never thought I’d find myself in the social work profession. When I discuss my educational background, people often ask what led me into this profession, but to me social work and politics are closely intertwined. However, social work and its role in the political arena is overlooked.
