HOW CAN SPEC

HELP ME & MY FAMILY?


SPEC HISTORY


Established in 1978, the SPEC Association for Children & Families, began as a fee-for-service program with Alberta Social Services and Community Health. Since SPEC’s incorporation in 1979, the programs have continued to grow and offer services for children and families under the guidance and leadership of dedicated board members, staff, and volunteers.

SPEC is focused on the positive development of kids by providing a continuum of services from early intervention (prevention) to high intervention during crisis. By providing family support services, SPEC continues to focus on a variety of preventive and educational programs that promotes a caring and committed community where kids are resilient and valued.

TESTIMONIALS


  • The Parent Link Centre has changed my life! Before I started coming to the programs, I was so isolated and my daughter was very shy. Especially as an immigrant and learning a new language, it’s hard to make friends. Now my daughter has good social skills and lots of friends. I get to connect with other moms. We’re much happier now.
