One Hundred Stories for One Hundred Years

As part of our 100th Anniversary celebrations, we asked our friend Clem Martini, University of Calgary professor and playwright, to compile and edit a book – One Hundred Stories for One Hundred Years. It is available here.



For 100 years, Wood’s Homes has offered a lifeline to children and their families who have nowhere else to turn. A multiservice, non-profit children’s mental health organization based in Calgary, Wood’s Homes serves communities throughout Alberta and in the Northwest Territories. In honour of the 100th anniversary of Wood’s Homes in 2014, this collection of 100 stories celebrates the deep and lasting impact the organization has had on those who have lived and worked there. The stories — sometimes quirky, sometimes raw, but always coming from the heart — also reveals the dramatic changes in the needs of young people and their communities over the last century.
