2019 Help Me Grow – Long Island Highlights

Help Me Grow – Long Island expanded and improved how it served families in 2019. Here are some brief highlights on how we did:

  • 400+ unique families served in 2019 via the Help Me Grow – Long Island Centralized Access Point
  • 1,850+ developmental and social emotional screens completed as part of Help Me Grow – Long Island, via our Centralized Access Point and our screening partners
  • 30% of families served are pregnant or have a child under 1 year old
  • 47.4% of families served are primarily Spanish-speaking
  • 51% of families come to Help Me Grow – Long Island via a referral from their health care provider
  • About 80% of families with known outcomes are connected to services

 

In fall 2019, Help Me Grow – Long Island launched its first ever Early Learning Screening Collaboratives, intended to support early learning sites in integrating developmental promotion, screening and referral into their work with families. The learning collaboratives are in partnership with the Child Care Council of Nassau, Child Care Council of Suffolk, and QUALITYStarsNY. The project is supported by the New York State Office of Children and Family Services and came out of participation in the Help Me Grow National Early Learning Community of Practice.
