“As a parent and especially as a first-time parent you have so many questions and you never know if you’re doing the right thing. You never know If this is normal – if my child is normal. They’re gonna help me get through being a parent. “
“I don’t know where we’d be today if it weren’t for Help Me Grow.”
Help Me Grow Home Visitors teach new moms how to keep their children healthy; coach families on how to be great parents; and provide one on one support. Home visitors are there for moms and babies at the most important time in their lives.
The Help Me Grow Home Visiting program provides expectant or new parents with the information, support, and encouragement they need through a voluntary, high-quality home visiting service.
By supporting the positive interaction with children in stable and stimulating environments, Help Me Grow seeks to create a sturdy foundation for future achievement. Ultimately, this approach is essential to the educational and economic success of Ohio’s children and families.
The Help Me Grow Home Visiting program has four central goals:
1. Increase healthy pregnancies;
2. Improve parenting confidence and competence;
3. Increase family connectedness to community and social supports;
4. Improve child health, development, and readiness.
