Help Me Grow is a parent information line designed to connect families to information about child development and community resources. Any parent is welcome to dial 2-1-1 and ask any question they might have about child development, parenting, etc. As a healthcare provider, you work with so many families that need to be connected to various resources, not just medical resources. Help Me Grow supports you by making referrals and then following up with the families to make sure that they received help appropriate to their concerns and circumstances. We also provide parents with a developmental screening tool that helps them understand typical child development. To strengthen the relationship between you and your patient, we will always fax providers (with family’s permission) a summary of the completed developmental questionnaire, as well as any resources or services we were able to connect the family referred.
