Help Me Grow is a framework that promotes integrated, cross-sector collaboration in an effort to build a comprehensive early childhood system. Successful implementation of Help Me Grow leverages existing community resources, maximizes opportunities, and advances partnerships working collaboratively. The Help Me Grow framework has four core components or system priorities: Family & Community Outreach, Child Health Care Provider Outreach, Data Collection, and Centralized Access Point.
- Family & Community Outreach supports education to advance developmental promotion and provides connection opportunities among families and providers.
- Child Health Care Provider Outreach supports early detection and intervention.
- A Centralized Access Point connects children and families to services and care coordination in their community.
- Data Collection & Analysis supports evaluation, helps identify systematic gaps, bolsters advocacy efforts, and guides quality improvement to ensure children and families receive the services they need, when they need them.
