Serving Brooks & Area

The SPEC HUB is the point of entry for early intervention and prevention services for families with children 0-18 years old in the City of Brooks and the County of Newell.   The Hub provides intake and coordination services and arranges the delivery of a full array of services, supports, and programming.

The Hub is part of the new Family Resource Network (FRN) funded through Children’s Services.  The FRN follows a “Hub and Spoke” model throughout the province in which the “Spokes” are the formal service partnerships created to meet the needs of all age cohorts of children, intensity levels of services and home visitation services.
