Help Me Grow – Long Island Breakfast Briefing a Success Despite Impending Snow

Docs for Tots co-hosted the first ever Breakfast Briefing for Help Me Grow – Long Island on Thursday, November 15th. The goal of the briefing was to introduce Help Me Grow – Long Island to community partners and hear from a wide range of entities that have benefited from partnership, including:

  • Adelphi Institute for Parenting
  • Northwell Family Connects
  • Winthrop Pediatric Associates
  • Friedberg Jewish Community Center
  • Academic Explorers LLC

A highlight was hearing directly from a new mom who worked with Help Me Grow – Long Island to prepare for the arrival of her baby.

The event was hosted at the Nassau BOCES Joseph M. Barry Career & Technical Education Center and coordinated by the Help Me Grow – Long Island Community Outreach Work Group.
