Family Resource Networks, funded through Children’s Services, deliver prevention and early intervention services and supports for children aged 0-18, through a provincial network of community –based service providers. Through a ‘hub and spoke’ model of service delivery, FRN hubs organize and coordinate services in their geographic areas and in various cultural communities. These services are provided either directly by a hub, through spoke services, or collaboratively with informal and formal community partners.
The SPEC Hub is part of the Family Resource Network (FRN) providing information, referral and service navigation for families who have children 0 – 18yrs. The FRN supports expectant parents, families, caregivers and communities to support the safety and resiliency of infants, children, and youth within nurturing and supportive environments. Program and services will:
- support child safety, well-being
- child/youth development
- and strengthen parenting and caregiver knowledge.
