Imagine the incredible impact that District 7010 Rotarians could have if all clubs came together to support a common cause. That’s exactly what Past District Governor Margaret Walton initiated in 2016-2017 – to work together to positively impact the communities in our District. Clubs are encouraged to support the children’s treatment centre that provides service in their communities. Supporting our local children’s treatment centres aligns with two of Rotary’s six areas of focus – Supporting Women and Children and Fighting Disease. By being part of the first “Rotary District 7010 Community Service Project”, you can help some of the most vulnerable children in your community by supporting the programs and equipment at children’s treatment centre that serves your community.
In District 7010, there are 6 children’s treatment centres that serve our Ontario communities. These include:
  • The Children’s Treatment Network of Simcoe York Barrie Resource Centre in Barrie with satellite locations in Orillia, Midland and Collingwood.
  • One Kids Place  in North Bay with satellite locations in Huntsville and Parry Sound
  • Health Sciences North or HSN Children's Treatment Centre in Sudbury
  • Five Counties Children’s Centre in Peterborough with satellite locations in Lindsay and Minden
  • Cochrane Temiskaming Children's Treatment Centre in Timmins with satellite locations in Kapuskasing, Kirkland Lake, North Cobalt, Moose Factory
  • Thrive Child Development Centre in Sault Ste. Marie with a satellite location in Elliot Lake
In the Quebec region of District 7010, the children’s treatment centre info is pending.
The directors and staff of each of the treatment centres are very excited about this district-wide project. They have provided us with a description of the services provided by the centre and a list of items and programs for Rotary Clubs to consider supporting.

Our hope is that all clubs will choose to get involved at some level with the children’s rehabilitation centre that provides services to children in their communities. If your club does choose to get involved, please email Shelly Duben, Director of Service Projects at with the details. We want to keep track of all contributions made to the children’s centres so that we can see the impact that our district can have when clubs work toward a similar goal.
