Help Me Grow is now in Los Angeles County

Help Me Grow LA (HMG LA) is a community-driven effort to ensure every child receives support for developmental concerns at the earliest possible moment.

Launched by the Los Angeles County of Public Health (LACDPH) and First 5 LA, the HMG LA hub brings together a variety of programs and services into one centralized access point to help improve the complex system of care.

Child Care Resource Center was chosen as a leading community partner and is collaborating with Antelope Valley Partners for Health, Child Development Institute, and Family Focus Resource Center, to help improve the referral pathway in the local community.

Whether a family has a concern, or they just want to know more about their child’s development HMG LA connects them to free or low-cost local services and support including: referrals to screenings and check-ups, connections to agencies that provide early developmental services, growth milestones tools, parents support.

In fact, these rates are higher than other parts of Los Angeles County! While many factors contribute to this trend (including income level), there are plenty of resources available to help families cultivate an environment that supports healthy pregnancies and children from their first days through adulthood.
