Help Me Grow program expanding in Utah

With the help of generous funding from Utah's Department of Health, Department of Human Services and Department of Workforce Services, Help Me Grow will be expanding their borders past the Wasatch front to the entire state of Utah! The same care coordination that is offered to the families of Utah County will now be available to strengthen families statewide.   

What is Help Me Grow?
Help Me Grow is a FREE information line connecting families to community resources and child development information. More specifically, we offer the following services:
  •  Information on general child development and parenting topics
  • Referrals to community resources, such as early intervention agencies, family therapy, literacy support, mentoring and tutoring programs, parenting classes, recreational opportunities, and much more! 
  • Developmental screening questionnaires, the Ages and Stages Questionnaire (ASQ), for children ages 0-65 months (approx. 5.5 years)
  • Care coordination to ensure that families successfully connect with resources
