June Dresses is a month-long, peer-to-peer fundraising campaign for women where participants pledge to wear a dress or a skirt each day in the month of June. Funds donated through this page go directly to The SPEC Association and the work we do in support of women. To learn more about June Dresses, including tips & tricks for making it through the month, local volunteering events and much more, please visit

At the SPEC Association, we really care about women. The following three programs we offer are specifically for the women of Brooks and surrounding communities.


The First Steps Program offers support and advocacy for pregnant women who are struggling with alcohol and/or substance use. Participants can receive three years of support with the following goals:

  • To help mothers build and maintain healthy, independent family lives
  • To assure that children are in safe and stable homes
  • To prevent future births of alcohol and drug exposed children

HIPPY (Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters)

HIPPY is an evidence-based program that works with immigrant families in their home to support parents, primarily mothers, in their critical role as their child’s first and most important educator. With a 30-week Program designed for children ages three, four and five, HIPPY strengthens families and communities by empowering mothers to actively prepare their children for success in school.


Ladies LINKS reaches out to Permanent Resident women who are in isolation, stay at home moms, unemployed and all those who are new to the community. This is a way to get involved and connected with other members of the community and to the different resources. The group also targets low level English clients, so they can improve their English and their level of confidence.
