Our acknowledgement and commitment

Wood’s Homes has been on a learning journey to understand Indigenous world views and the importance of ceremony and connection. We acknowledge the impact that colonization has had on Indigenous peoples across Canada. 
 
Wood's Homes is wholly committed to correction and reconciliation and stands in full support of all Indigenous peoples to reclaim what was taken from them and to find safe and healing places to celebrate culture, language, ceremony and connection to the land.

With that, we're proud to unveil our 2020/21 Annual Report.

Children’s Mental Health Day: A look back at Wood’s Homes celebrations

For nearly a decade, Wood’s Homes has been recognizing Children’s Mental Health Day (CMHD) as a way to bring attention to - and break down the stigma - attached to mental health challenges faced by young people. This year, Mental Health Week takes place May 3 – 9 with Children’s Mental Health Day falling on May 7.

Wood’s Homes has celebrated Children’s Mental Health Day in a number of ways, ranging from staff and client-focused campaigns/activities, to far-reaching events involving the community, donors, media, noted Calgarians and even a large-scale march through the heart of downtown.
