About Us

Wood's Homes is a community owned and operated children's mental health centre based in Calgary. With a staff complement of 350 we provide 34 programs and services for at-risk children, youth and their families.

Wood's Homes is recognized in the community and across Canada, for its innovative services. We are a place of trust, where all young people and their families (regardless of the difficulty) can turn to for help. We strongly believe that families are the backbone of a community. When families are in trouble, children suffer. Helping young people reach adulthood, achieve their potential and become productive members of the community must be one of society's top priorities.

We Never Say No,
We Never Give Up,
We Never Turn Anyone Away

Our Mission

To promote and assist the development and well-being of children, youth and families within their community.

Our Core Values

  • Commitment   
  • Respect   
  • Belonging   
  • Responsibility   
  • Leadership   
  • Trustworthiness

Our core residential programs are located on two campuses in Calgary - one in Parkdale where the Tuer Children's Mental Health Centre is located, and the other in Bowness.

  • Crisis & Counseling
  • In-home support, Foster Care
  • Street Services
  • Specialized Learning Centres
  • Residential Treatment
  • Outcome-Based Service Delivery

One of the key values of Wood's Homes is that of partnership – establishing a connection with others in order to provide better, more accessible and more immediate service to children, families and communities. Woods Homes has partnered with the Calgary Board of Education where Woods provides clinical and behavioral support within the school environment. Two schools are located on Woods Homes campuses (William Taylor Learning Centre and George Wood Learning Centre).
