During these challenging times, we want to make it easier for people to access information and resources to support themselves and their loved ones.
Here are some resources we’ve created for you:
New mom? Mom with young children? Need support and to feel connected?
CAPC & CPNP groups provide confidential support, connection to other moms and kids, free food and more.
CPNP Special Delivery Club
Pregnant women and new moms meet as a group once a week on Friday mornings to talk, listen to guest speakers, and get up-to-date information and lots of support around pregnancy, birth, breast feeding, nutrition, growth and development and parenting. A nutritious meal is provided, and group members are able to access free milk, fresh vegetables, additional food and prenatal vitamins. It’s a busy, fun, positive place to be!
The Special Delivery Club is co-facilitated by the Haliburton Kawartha Pine Ridge District Health Unit and SIRCH. The Group is located in Haliburton and transportation is provided, if needed. Qualified child care providers look after the babies, and have activities for younger children such as arts, crafts and story time while the moms participate in the information session.
Community Action Program For Children
Parents with young children, 6 or under, meet weekly on Wednesday mornings in Haliburton. Parents receive information on a variety of topics, learn to cook nutritious food on a budget, and are linked with other agencies and supports that can assist them with any issues they may be dealing with (such as finances, housing, legal, personal, vocational, or social). Children’s programming provides young children with stimulating activities designed to increase their developmental skills and build social skills. Life-long friendships have been forged at CAPC which is fast-paced, interactive and lots of fun!
Transportation, or help with gas, is provided if needed.
