About SIRCH Community Services
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. SIRCH also stands for So It Really Can Happen! Founded in 1989 to identify and meet gaps in social and health services, over the past 25 years we have developed dozens of community-based programs and services in Haliburton County (Ontario, Canada) and also expanded to provide select services internationally. Some of the programs we developed have, over the years, been divested or closed. Current programs and services are evaluated regularly to make sure they continue to be responsive, needed and effective. We are making a difference!
What People Are Saying
"Your charity does an amazing job for your community. Well done!"
— SIRCH donor
"We were given SIRCH meals on a day that we literally had nothing in the fridge and the food banks weren't open. I cried out of sheer relief. And it meant so much to know that they were made by community volunteers who understand and care."
— Haliburton county resident
"When you think about the things we take for granted, like buying what we feel like eating for dinner or always having milk in our fridge, we forget that this is not the reality for many in our community. I am honoured to volunteer in the SIRCH Community Kitchen. "
