"It takes a village to raise a child."

This old adage is at the heart of the work of the Healthy Child Coalition – South East.

Through the work of community partners from across the region, the coalition supports young families.  From prenatal to school entry there are many services and resources available to assist parents.

The Healthy Child Coalition-South East is one of 19 parent child coalitions in Manitoba.  Our region is from highway 1 to the U.S. border and from highway 75 to the Ontario border.  We bring together partners and resources within the South East to support parent child programming and parenting programming.

Healthy Child Coalition South East is located on the original lands of First Nations and Inuit peoples, and on the homeland of the Métis Nation. Manitoba’s health authorities respect that First Nations treaties were made on these territories, acknowledge harms and mistakes, and we dedicate ourselves to collaborate in partnership with First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples in the spirit of reconciliation.
