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.
As of July 6, 2020 our team is returning to the Clinton office, on a rotating basis, Monday thru Thursdays. The office continues to be closed to the public.
On Thursdays, starting August 6, 2020, we are offering "parking lot parenting" at 58 Mary Street, Clinton N0M 1L0 between 11 am and 12 pm. Just pull into the parking lot and one of our team will greet you to learn more about your parenting needs. We encourage you to wear a mask and stay in your vehicle.
