SIRCH is an incorporated non profit organization with charitable status. The legal name is Supportive Initiative for Residents in the County of Haliburton. It became shortened to SIRCH quite quickly.

Since 1989, SIRCH Community Services has developed dozens of community-based programs and services. Primarily serving Haliburton Highlands, SIRCH also sponsors programs or social enterprises in North Hastings County, City of Kawartha Lakes, and Northumberland County. Many of our innovations have been adapted to other communities. SIRCH is passionate about helping to create resilience, reduce poverty and encourage connection. We do that by building networks, supporting individuals and families, offering volunteer opportunities, providing innovative training, and having a “can do” attitude. We also do it through social enterprises that maximize positive social impact.
