Hinton Family CentreThe program is a free admission, drop-in centre for parents and children ages 0-6 years old. The goal is to support family connection between parent and child in a safe and caring environment.
Volunteer Police Information Checks (PICs)This program relieves non-profit groups of the cost of PICs for their volunteers. Volunteers are required to obtain a letter from their respective organizations stating that they are recruiting that person's volunteer services. The letter must be submitted to the RCMP along with a current driver's license with a Hinton address on it. PICs take up to 1 week to process and are free of charge. Volunteers must pick up their PIC in person and show their driver's license at that time.
