Help Me GROW – Long Island

Connecting Families & Providers with Support

Launched in January 2018, Help Me Grow – Long Island (HMG-LI) 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 no-fee, 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.
