SIRCH continued to provide CAPC & CPNP, food initiatives, a variety of training opportunities, and Bereavement Support.

Thrift Warehouse Haliburton and Thrift Warehouse Bancroft continued to be thriving social enterprises. At Bancroft Thrift, we opened a “Smash Room,” where you could don safety shields and smash glasses that are chipped, onsies or otherwise unsaleable. A video was made.

Cook It Up trained 9 more people in food services. As in previous years, trainees took over Baked & Battered on a day they were typically closed and provided free 3-course lunches to the public, as our way of saying “thank-you” to a generous community.

Simply Homemade again had the opportunity to exclusively offer lunches to students attending the School of Art & Design in Haliburton at JDH School. A proposal was submitted to Haliburton County Development Corporation which, if funded, would allow SIRCH to pilot ways to expand Simply Homemade, creating training and job opportunities.

A Journey Through Grief group, facilitated by skilled and trained volunteers started in May.

The SIRCH office building on County Rd 21 was sold; SIRCH looked for a new home!

In the fall, the Bereavement Program was divested to Haliburton Highlands Health Services.
