What is Help Me Grow?

Help Me Grow offers two voluntary programs: Home Visitation and Early Intervention.

When you contact Central Coordination, our staff will help refer you to the program that will work best for your family.

Early Intervention

When you make a referral for Early Intervention services, you are assigned to a Service Coordinator who will be with your family during your time in the program. If your child has a developmental delay or disability, your service coordinator will help you navigate our system by:

  • Completing developmental screenings;
  • Coordinating a developmental evaluation and assessment;
  • Helping you choose which service providers will meet your family’s unique needs;
  • Facilitating the development of your Individualized Family Service Plan (IFSP);
  • And helping your child transition from Early Intervention services at age 3.

Home Visitation

Help Me Grow Home Visitation is primarily for first-time parents who have a child younger than six months old. Income guidelines may apply.

Trained Home Visitors can answer questions about pregnancy or being a parent. They work with families to set and reach their goals.

Home Visiting services include:

  • Parenting education;
  • Developmental Screenings;
  • Referrals for community resources as needed;
  • and transition from Home Visitation at age 3.

Anyone can make a referral to Champaign County Help Me Grow by calling (937) 652-1218 or by emailing fcfhelpmegrow@ctcn.net!
