A book, “From Dream to Reality,” written by Lon Duncombe about the Women’s Emergency House model, was published and launched in Toronto.

Recognizing the need for credit counselling, and the difficulty people had getting to the service in Peterborough, SIRCH partnered with Peterborough Credit Counseling to bring free financial counselling services to the residents of Haliburton County.

Parent Support Services, SIRCH’s very first program, was divested to the newly formed Family Services of Haliburton County. That amalgamation process was driven by the Ministry of Community and Social Services, and included Case Coordination, Kinark Child and Family Services, Infant Development Program, and SIRCH’s Parent Support Program.

SIRCH developed and delivered a 26 week, full-time Special Needs Worker training program and a 30-week full-time Facilitation Skills program.
