Enviros’ programs range from assisting individuals to helping families. Enviros facilitates 12 programs under the umbrellas of Addiction Services, Youth Justice, Group Care Programs & Community Programs.

There are many different programs at Enviros, and while they’re as varied as the clients they serve there is one common thread.

“All of our programs work with people, and we see people as been whole and as being competent and capable.” Carolyn Godfrey, Director of Services.

People are at the core of all twelve programs Enviros operates. Whether it’s helping a teen transition to adulthood by teaching them to pay bills and find an apartment, or giving parents the tools to communicate with troubled children, it’s important for everyone at Enviros to treat clients as human beings.

“We work with children, youth, families and young adults in a variety of capacities through the children’s services system as well as the justice system, and addictions and mental health,” adds Hazel Bergen, Chief Executive Officer. “We work with some of the more vulnerable people in the Calgary area, and we to that in a variety of different ways across a wide range of programs.” 

Enviros programs range from assisting individuals to helping families.
