Unlimited Potential Community Services (UP) is a non-profit charitable society that has been providing quality support and treatment since 1987. From the beginning, we were known as an organization that wouldn’t give up on youth with emotional, developmental, and psychiatric challenges.
We are an accredited agency providing services to children, youth, adults, and families referred by provincial and territorial social services, health, and education authorities. Some private placements are possible, subject to government mandates.
We have recently expanded and diversified our services to include children, youth, families, and adults. We have grown from one treatment centre where we served 14 children and youth, to multiple residences and schools in Alberta. To communicate these increased services, we decided to change our name to UP.
The name Unlimited Potential conveys our mission of helping people, whether they are coping with mental health illnesses, histories of abuse, overcoming addictions, developing life skills, or furthering their education or employment.
We foster the potential in each one of our clients so that the only way to go is UP!
UP believes cultural tradition is an important part of mental wellness, so we incorporate the culture and traditions of our clients wherever possible. UP also has an Indigenous Resources Department that provides cultural awareness and services to UP’s clients and staff in all programs and departments.
We acknowledge Treaty 6 territory—the traditional and ancestral territory of the Cree, Dene, Blackfoot, Saulteaux , Nakota Sioux and Métis Peoples. We acknowledge the many First Nations, Métis and Inuit who have lived in and cared for these lands since time immemorial. We respect their histories, languages, and cultures whose presence continues to enrich our community. We are grateful for the traditional Elders and Knowledge Keepers who are still with us today and those who have gone before us. We make this acknowledgement as an act of reconciliation and gratitude to those whose territory we are visiting and striving to live in harmony with.
We welcome your questions and comments.
UP’s main administrative office is located in Edmonton, Alberta.
