New Horizon - Housing Services and Support

NOTE: This program is only available with a referral.

Over the years, Wood’s Homes began looking for a way to provide stable, supportive housing for young adults (ages 18-29) who are at risk of being homeless. In 2010, we launched New Horizon, in partnership with Horizon Housing Society and the Calgary Homeless Foundation.

Temporary, low-cost apartment units are now occupied in three community buildings and at the Wood’s Homes Inglewood Campus. Young adults are able to live in furnished apartments, thanks to generous corporate support.

Young people are selected for this program on the basis of their hard work, dedication and hunger to build better lives for themselves. Wood’s Homes staff provide individualized support fostering a successful transition to independence.  Supports include: how to budget their money, shop for groceries, cook and clean, set up bank accounts, and how to find and keep employment.  All New Horizon residents have the unique opportunity to utilize the many programs offered at the Inglewood Campus including employment training and support, physical wellness support, mental health support, addictions support, peer support groups, recreational activities and basic needs support.
