We continue to reach out to the inner city community through special seasonal events and personal contact. Our councilors, Chaplains and volunteers, visit people on the street, in prisons, hospitals, and other agencies. In all, our desire is to provide compassionate care, and offer hope to the hurting, the hungry and the homeless in Edmonton.

Hull is a registered charity governed by a volunteer board made up of members who bring their commitment and talents to help achieve our mission. We provide a full range of services from prevention to intensive residential treatment. Of the well over 600 clients we serve daily, two-thirds live in community settings. We receive the majority of our operating funds from Calgary Rocky View Child and Family Services, the Calgary Board of Education and other public funding bodies. However, we could not provide our services without community, corporate and private support. HULL'S VALUES Our children are our number one priority and our best investment in the future. Our clients want, and have the ability, to change their lives. Children, wherever possible, are best cared for in families in the community. Prevention and early-intervention are the most effective and cost efficient ways of helping at-risk children. We strive to meet the total needs of each individual child. For many of our kids and families, a long-term commitment and a consistent follow-through of support is vital to their success. We respect the cultural heritage of all of our cilents, appreciating the unique needs of Aboriginal children and families. We are accountable to our clients, our community and our funders
