Happy Hullidays at Hull Services!

Every year, many children, youth, and families have little or nothing at Christmas. While there are some resources in the community, they often fill up quickly. Additionally, children who live in care at Hull Services often spend Christmas with no opportunity to visit family.

Give a gift for Christmas morning: Many of the kids and youth in Hull’s live-in or group care programs often do not see their families nor have any connection with them. Therefore, they spend the holidays in the care of Hull Services. You can help to ensure that every child and youth residing in our care will have a present to open on Christmas morning. You can be matched with a child or youth and provided with a “wish list” specific to them or donate to our general wish list to help give gifts to those children and youth that come in during the holidays.

For more information, please contact:

100% of your donation goes directly to the child or youth.

St. Stephen's School Plyaground Update

We are writing to inform the community of Woodcreek that St. Stephen school playground has reached the end of its lifespan, and we expect its removal this coming June 2023.


St. Stephen is an Elementary Junior High (K-9) School serving approximately 360 from Southwood, Legacy, Canyon Meadows, and Woodbine/Woodlands. St Stephen playground not only benefits the student population but is a crucial play structure and gathering space for the children and caregivers of the surrounding Southwood community.

We are in discussion with BDI regarding the construction of a new playground on the site with a target installation date of Summer 2024.


To go ahead with this build, we will need to raise a total of $250,000 by spring 2024. Our current goal is to raise $100,000 by September 2023 to apply for CFEP matching funds.
