Hull Services has an organizational commitment to pursuing truth and reconciliation, decolonization and anti-oppression.
Hull Services has long had a reputation for providing leading edge child, youth, and family mental health services. We work with children, youth and families who have experienced mental health struggles, behavioural problems, developmental delay, neglect, abuse and trauma. Hull offers them an opportunity to seek well-being and happiness, with a focus on mental health. Hull’s vision is for resilient young people and families to thrive within communities that support their mental health and well-being. Hull’s programs and services include prevention and early intervention, family-based treatment, school-based services, community group care, campus-based care, adult services and education and training. Located in Calgary, we have been serving Alberta’s young people and families for 60 years, and support over 8,000 young people and families each year.

River Lodge is a therapeutic campus-based care program that provides intensive treatment to youth aged 12 to 17 with dual diagnoses. These youth have developmental delays and social and emotional deficits along with mental health issues. We provide safety and stability in a highly structured setting to help them attain success and reintegrate them back into the community. We strive to improve their self-regulation skills, social skills and adaptive functioning. Treatment practices follow a behavioural-family systems orientation where social learning methods are used to promote behaviour change. The program also has a strong focus on preserving family and cultural connections by providing support through family work and after care services.
The program has an opening for a full time Child and Youth Care Counsellor. The schedule for this position requires flexibility to work weekday/weekend morning and/or evening shifts (shifts are generally 7:00 a.m. to 3:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m.).
