When we work together, we are contributing to a safe community where children thrive. Thanks to an investment by the Government of Ontario, and local partnerships with Huron OPP and Healthy Kids Community Challenge, at least 200 Huron County residents will be Safe Places Huron Youth Certified over the next 18 months. Also, gratitude to the Municipality of Swift Current, Saskatchewan, Respect Group Inc and of course, Sheldon Kennedy for their guidance and passion to keep children and youth safe!
