Help Me Grow – Long Island

Launched in January 2018, Help Me Grow – Long Island is a FREE resource connecting families and providers to community resources and child development information in Nassau and Suffolk counties, with the mission of promoting optimal development of Long Island’s young children. HMG-LI provides free, virtual, ongoing support to families to meet the needs of their young children, and trains providers to use developmental screens with the families they serve. Help Me Grow – Long Island isn’t an agency, but a partnership based on a national model for organizing existing agencies with the goal of more efficiently and effectively reaching and helping at-risk children. HMG-LI is coordinated by Docs for Tots, housed at the Child Care Council of Nassau, and is connected to United Way of Long Island’s 2-1-1 phone system.
