Our Kids Network
Our Kids Network is a Halton-wide partnership of organizations and agencies serving children and youth.
Guided by research, the network provides leadership and a platform for planning, integrating and aligning services and supports so all children thrive. The work of Our Kids Network is focused on child development from pregnancy to 18 years and is planned on evidence-based, strategic directions. Sector leaders from education, government, health, mental health and special needs, police services and the multicultural community provide direction and planning. Participating community agencies develop and implement initiatives and programs at the neighbourhood level.
The leaders who form the foundation of the Network are:
- The Halton Children’s Aid Society
- The Regional Municipality of Halton
- Halton Regional Police Services
- Halton District School Board
- Halton Catholic District School Board
- Reach Out Centre for Kids (ROCK)
- Halton Multicultural Council
- ErinoakKids, Centre for Treatment and Development
The Halton Children’s Aid Society is proud to be a partner in Our Kids Network.
Meet Alison, a Hub Co-ordinator
When Alison became a co-ordinator with Our Kids Network’s Acton Community Hub in mid-2007, she found a big part of her role was advocacy, in part for the town itself.
“I learned very early on that speaking up for Acton was a huge part of my job. Now people know I’m going to be loud and make a lot of noise for Acton families when I go to meetings. I speak for the ‘north,’ when it comes to making choices of where meetings and events are going to be held, and try to make sure we are represented.” Read More . . .
