Cutbacks for Childrens Program

Clinton | by Peter Jackson  

Outreach program will scale back operations in July and August to save money.

With the approach of the summer season, the Clinton-based Rural Response for Healthy Children organization is temporarily cutting back service.

Manager of Program Services Dorothy Beuermann says RRHC expects client demand to drop once the school year ends a month from now.

She points out that the warmer weather gives the organization a chance to save money especially in the face of high fuel prices for transportation.

Much of the work Rural Response for Healthy Children does is through community outreach and depends heavily on mini-buses that travel throughout Huron.

Beuermann says transportation is key to RRHC programs to provide a wide range of activities and needs.

The most high-profile services RRHC offers are "THE Bus" and a mobile toy and resource library.

Parent support teams also need transportation.

Beuermann assures the community the service reduction is only for the summer season.

She mentions that people can still call in for one-to-one support whenever needed.

Beuermann says RRHC is always ready to go into a community to provide whatever support service is needed despite the seasonal cutback.

She indicates RRHC services will return to normal in early September.
