We are honoured and grateful to have been nominated for the Haliburton Highlands Chamber of Commerce “Not-for-Profit of the Year” Award. This is the 4th time SIRCH has been nominated and we are humbled and elated every time. We create and maintain our programs, services, social enterprises and resources through strong partnerships and incredible support from this community, so this is also an acknowledgement of the generous, community-minded businesses, individuals and organizations who help us every day. Thank you!
We also are thrilled that the leadership of our Executive Director, Gena Robertson, has been recognized. She has been nominated for “Highlander of the Year”.
SIRCH’s vision is “to have thriving communities where each person feels connected, supported and encouraged”. In the last 12 months, we have employed 29 people. And contracted with over 20 more. That’s a lot of economic ripple! We work hard to bring grants and government funding into Haliburton County. We are working hard to develop thriving social enterprises that not only help the community but generate revenue for SIRCH’s programs. We provide support groups and programs, food, mentoring, educational events, low-cost goods and a wide variety of services to hundreds, maybe thousands, of residents. Our staff and volunteers love what they do. We are proud to have the opportunity to create health and resilience and prosperity in the community in which we choose to live. And we are honoured to be nominated for the Chamber Awards.
