Rural Response for Healthy Children acknowledges that the geographic area we support is located on the traditional lands of the Ojibwa Chippewa of the Anishnaabe group of Indigenous peoples. Huron County is on territory that is covered by Crown Treaty Number 29, known as the Huron Tract Purchase of 1827. As a community, we have the responsibility for the stewardship of the land on which we live and work. We recognize and deeply appreciate the Indigenous historic connection to this place and the agreement with the Crown of Canada to peaceably share and care for the resources around the Great Lakes.
Rural Response for Healthy Children is a non-profit charity that serves Huron County families. Our work contributes to fostering a healthy community of trusted adults where children and youth thrive.
Our team offers education and support groups, activities and workshops for parents / caregivers who are:
experiencing life transitions (pregnancy, new parents, starting school)
managing relationships between parent / child / school / community
coping with vulnerable situations (addictions, disabilities, domestic violence, financial challenges, illness, single parenting)
The team also educates children and youth with a focus on;
personal safety at home, in the community and online
social and emotional learning; including self-regulation and social skills
