Why We Exist
Our Vision is to create the conditions in society where children and their families are free from behavioural and mental health challenges.
We work with children who have often experienced chaotic, trouble filled lives. Hull offers them, and their families, an opportunity to seek health and happiness with a focus on mental health.
What guides our work every day is a belief in the dignity, wellness and worth of all. This combined with a commitment to integrity, collaboration, trust and accountability. Simply put, we care. And we want you to care too.
Our founder, and continuing inspiration, William Roper Hull, was an entrepreneur, visionary and philanthropist. His contributions to Calgary, the province of Alberta and western Canada left a blueprint of good citizenship for legions of others to emulate.
He said in 1883 of Calgary, “There will be a city of at least 25,000. I see houses, schools, shops and churches and everything one needs for a happy life and I will help to build it.”
Mr. Hull recognized that a good life requires a fabric of services, resources and relationships. Because of William Roper Hull’s generosity, thousands of kids, young adults and families are helped every day through Hull Services.
In 2017 we continue to strive toward the highest of ideals while remaining steadfast in the belief that every child, every family, matters.
