Statewide Expansion

Help Me Grow California counties have partnered with local organizations to promote children’s optimal, healthy development through a process of developmental promotion, early detection, referral and linkage. Due to the complexity of demographics in a state that is the largest sub-national entity in North America, delivery of Help Me Grow may look different county to county, yet they will still maintain fidelity to the core components that create a robust system. By affording each county the flexibility to capitalize upon previously established relationships and investments that have been underway through their local First 5 efforts and investments, counties across the state have demonstrated the ability to increase awareness about and implementation of developmental screening tools to ensure children are identified and connected to the appropriate interventions they need.
