Help Me Grow (HMG)
Help Me Grow (HMG) is a free, confidential telephone access point that connects families with young children (birth to 5 years old) with local family support services. A community resource specialist will speak with you about your needs and connect you to your County Central Intake for local services and programs.
Through its system-wide approach, HMG seeks to:
- Assist parents and families in getting connected with medical homes, home visiting and other community programs, early intervention, early childhood education, and family support services.
- Expand infant and child developmental and social-emotional screenings statewide.
- Simplify connections for pediatric and health care providers to community services for families of infants and young children in their care.
You can find a Central Intake Hub in your county by searching the NJ 2-1-1 Resource Database or by dialing 211 to speak with a trained community resource specialist.
