Foster Care, Therapeutic Foster Care & Parented Group Homes

Wood’s Homes knows the importance of ‘home’. Reverend George Wood opened his foster home in 1914 in Innisfail. Today, our services provide family-based care to children and young people with consistent in-home support to our foster parents in Calgary. Our therapeutic foster caregivers in the North (known as Home Fire Keepers) proudly serve the communities of Cold Lake, Grande Prairie and Lac La Biche.

Therapeutic Foster Care


This model of foster care serves young people (ages 13-17) who may have been in live-in care or group homes. The focus is on serving Indigenous foster children and is primarily intended for Indigenous caregivers who we call Home Fire Keepers as we recognize the importance of cultural connection.
