2-1-1 Help Me Grow

As a parent, you have the ability to observe the development of your child every step of the way. All children’s development varies slightly, but sometimes you might notice physical, emotional or behavioral development that just doesn’t seem right for their age. That’s where the Delaware 2-1-1 Help Me Grow comes in.

1-HMG-Blogs-Sept-9.25.1332-1-1 Help Me Grow is a centralized call center that connects families to child development services and other resources within their state. This call center serves as a seamless link for children and families to community based programs and services. By calling this one number, parents can be connected to dozens of programs to help their child. This eliminates the need for parents to search for phone numbers on their own, debunking what was once a complicated system.

When you call 2-1-1 Help Me Grow, you are directly connected with an experienced child development specialist to answer your questions and connect you with the community-based programs and services in your area. All you need, as a parent, is to provide the referral from your primary care provider or describe your everyday observations of your child to the child development specialist. From there you and your child will be connected with the best resources to address your specific needs.
