COLLABORATION AMONG COMMUNITY PROGRAMS

SERVICE PROVIDERS & HELP ME GROW

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 their child’s development. As a service provider you work with so many families that need to be connected to various resources in addition to the services you provide. If you make a referral to Help Me Grow, we will follow up with the family to make sure that they received the proper information. We keep track of community resources and we will include you and your program so that we can make appropriate referrals.

 

Referral Partnership

If you provide services for children birth through age eight, you can become a listed provider through your local 2-1-1 organization. The resources available through 2-1-1 are used to provide thousands of referrals a month to members of your community. In many communities, 2-1-1 has the largest and most comprehensive database of social services. To have your organization listed, it is free of charge to organizations that meet the local 2-1-1’s inclusion/exclusion policy. For more information about the requirements to become a listed provider or to become a referral through the resource database, contact your local 2-1-1 organization here.
