FALL/WINTER 2023 PROGRAMS
Our Family Support and Education team offer practical events and programs to families. Check out our programs page for a list of our current events and programs that are running from September to December 2023. There are in-person and virtual events for caregivers, children, and even professionals.
Family System Navigation
The team also supports families who are seeking additional help from other community organizations. This work is known as system navigation.
Each year, we offer a variety of workshops and learning series in elementary schools for primary grades across Huron and Perth counties. Themes relate to disability awareness, self-regulation, personal safety and social skills.
The School Program Guide is shared with AMDSB and HPCDSB teachers in September, who make arrangements with our team for classroom delivery.
SAFE PLACES HURON
Safe Places Youth Certification supports quality activities while reducing potential risks to children and youth.
Safe Places Youth Certification demonstrates to your community that you highly value your responsibility as a person in a position of trust with children and youth. It also demonstrates to children and youth that activity leaders have training and knowledge that contributes to building trust.
If you are an activity leader or volunteer, find out more about how you can start the certification process. Contact Nicole or call 1 (226) 699-0707 ext. 101.
HURON COUNTY CHRISTMAS BUREAU
The Huron County Christmas Bureau provides gift cards for the provision of groceries and gifts for children, ensuring every family in Huron County has access to food on the table and presents on the holidays.
The Huron County Christmas Bureau is funded by donations and fundraising efforts from the community. For over 50 years, churches, schools, community organizations, businesses, and caring individuals have rallied together to ensure every child in our community experiences the wonder of Christmas.
Please join us in continuing this very special Huron County tradition.
The Canadian Tire Jumpstart program is for parents/caregivers who need financial support to help pay for their children’s sports registration fees and/or equipment relating to a registered program. Please apply on the Canadian Tire Jumpstart website.
