Parent Resources and Useful Links
Help Me Grow is an interagency initiative of the State of Minnesota (Department of Education, Department of Health and Department of Human Services) partnering with all local service agencies. The website helps parents and caregivers recognize developmental milestones and how to seek additional support if they have concerns. This state-wide program provides health and developmental services such as health information, positive parenting education, and connecting families to community resources. The goal of Help Me Grow is for children to start school healthy and ready to learn. Services are designed with the family’s concerns and goals in mind. Help Me Grow is offered on a voluntary basis to families from prenatal to when their child turns three.  For more information on Minnesota's Help Me Grow program see the links below.
