Community Health Centers of the Rutland Region

Community Health Centers: In action in our communities!

True to our mission to improve and promote the health of all people in our service area, CHCRR supports many community efforts that promote the adoption of healthy habits in children and adults that will help them develop healthy lifestyle choices.

Community Health Centers of the Rutland Region is proud to sponsor and support the 2018 WALK FOR CHILDREN in preventing child abuse, step-by-step.

For the past 41 years, Prevent Child Abuse Vermont (PCAV) has been working to protect the health and happiness of children in our community. Board members, volunteers, and staff strive to prevent child abuse by promoting and supporting healthy relationships within families, schools, and communities to eliminate child abuse. Programs like Circle of Parents™,The Nurturing Parenting Program®,The Shaken Baby Syndrome Prevention Program, and The Sexual Abuse Free Environment for Teens Program™ (SAFE-T™) have helped Vermont see a 43% decrease in cases of substantiated abuse since 1990.

Vermont has become a national model for child abuse prevention, but there is still much work to be done.

Almost 900 Vermont children are found to be abused or neglected annually. We need to unite as a statewide community to ensure a safe, nurturing environment for every child growing up in Vermont.

The 2018 Walk for Children provides us with an opportunity to alert Vermonters to the need for a community commitment to child abuse prevention.

Every dollar you help raise in the 2018 Walk for Children helps support and inform the many Vermonters who are parents, guardians, teachers, and child care professionals. As a united, educated community, we can create stable, nurturing, and safe families for our children.

Together we will prevent child abuse, step by step by step. To join us, click here to register today.

Thank you!

CHCRR would like to remind you to get the Flu Shot and be a Flu Fighter.

Flu is a respiratory infection caused by a number of viruses. Most people with the flu get better on their own. But it can be serious. It can cause complications and sometimes even death. Getting the flu vaccine every year is the best way to lower your chance of getting the flu and spreading it to others.

The flu vaccine causes antibodies to develop in your body about two weeks after you get it. These antibodies provide protection against infection with the viruses that are in the vaccine. Everyone 6 months of age and older should get a flu vaccine every season. Ask your health care provider which one is right for you.
