About Hull Services

Hull Services (“Hull”) is a charitable organization in Calgary supporting children, youth and families experiencing mental health struggles, behavioural problems, developmental delay, neglect, abuse and trauma. For over 60 years, Hull has been a recognized innovator and leader in its field, known for their leadership in brain science and trauma-informed care to heal kids and support their families. Each year, they work with over 9,000 children and youth who have experienced significant trauma and other challenges, offering a wide spectrum of services and programs from 24 hour, live-in care for children and youth to supports in the community for families. Hull also has a CBE school on its campus and provides support at several public schools.

Hull is certified in the Neurosequential Model of Therapeutics (NMT) as its care model across all programs, incorporating knowledge and understanding of neuroscience and brain development. Hull is currently the only flagship site for the NMT in Canada.

Hull is committed to breaking the cycle of intergenerational trauma, having introduced Pathways to Prevention, an integrated arm of Hull which focuses on education, training, research and advocacy of the neurosequential model and its science-based approach, allowing them to increase the capacity of the community to intervene early to support at-risk children and their families. Hull was recently retained by the Province of Alberta to train government employees in this area.
