Children's Mental Health During COVID-19

Wood’s Homes is a children’s mental health centre that provides treatment and support for children, youth and families - a place where families can turn to when they feel they have nowhere else to go.

Our community needs us now more than ever. Families are scared and need someone to talk to. Thanks to donors like you, Wood’s Homes provides free counselling by phone, text, live-chat or email to anyone in need through Eastside Family Centre. We continue to provide treatment and support for children, youth and their families who access all of our programs and services.

We have seen a tremendous increase in calls to our crisis support lines as a direct result of COVID-19. Routines have changed due to school closures and working from home; self-isolation and social distancing have placed an increased demand on our programs. Every year, thousands of families access our programs but in the last few days, demand has surged and pressures to meet rising needs are becoming increasingly challenging. With your help, we can help. We know there will be a lasting, long-term impact on the mental health and well-being of our families.

Your donation today will help ensure Wood’s Homes is here to support the mental health of children, youth and families in our community throughout this crisis and into the future.
