21st annual Never Give Up Gala
We are excited to host our Never Give Up Gala on September 29 at the Hyatt Regency. We are thrilled with the loyal support of so many sponsors and donors. We’ll see you there!
EXIT Youth Hub
It’s been a long time dream to establish a one-stop-shop for vulnerable youth ages 12-24, who are looking for a path to a brighter future.
That dream came true when Wood’s Homes opened its third campus in the community of Inglewood. The new facility is now home to 6 programs that provide specific wraparound services for homeless and at-risk youth, creating the EXIT Youth Hub.
Don't delay your year-end donation to receive your 2018 tax receipt! Donations made via mail must be postmarked by December 31. Thank you for your support throughout the year. We wish you a wonderful holiday season!
Our recent tragedy
Wood’s Homes takes its responsibility in promoting a safe workplace very seriously.
We are fully co-operating with investigations underway by both Occupational Health and Safety and Calgary Police Services, and are conducting our own investigation into the incident.
As we have obligations regarding client confidentiality and privacy, we are unable to comment on any specifics related to our past or current clients.
Our thoughts are with the family of Debbie Onwu, and our Wood’s Homes family in the midst of this tragedy.
