Help Me Grow is a program we administer that utilizes 2-1-1 call centers statewide as a centralized telephone access point to answer child development questions and conduct age-appropriate developmental screenings for children ages 0-5.
As needs are identified, a regional care coordinator works to link families to services in their communities and follow-up to ensure a connection is made. We will share the reasons why you should call 2-1-1 and the significance of the developmental screening offered.
Help Me Grow hosts the Books, Balls, and Blocks events for families statewide. Upcoming events:
