DOVER, DE (Nov. 17, 2022) — The Maternal Child Health Bureau of the Delaware Division of Public Health (DPH), Delaware 2-1-1 and other state and community organizations proudly recognized Help Me Grow Delaware during an event celebrating Help Me Grow’s 10th anniversary on Nov. 9 at the Route 9 Library & Innovation Center in New Castle. The program utilizes a systems-based approach to connect families with the resources they need to help their children thrive.  
Event organizers read a proclamation from the Office of the Governor highlighting the program’s accomplishments to include the community resource fair hosted on Nov 9. The supporters below received plaques for their contribution to the program. 
Help Me Grow Delaware was founded in 2012 and is a comprehensive and coordinated statewide system for the early identification and referral of children at risk for developmental and behavioral challenges. The program helps families find community-based programs and services to enhance their child’s behavior, learning and development. 
“We know children make up the largest segment of people living in poverty and that one in six children ages 3 to 17 will have one or more developmental or behavioral disabilities,” said Crystal Sherman, section chief of DPH’s Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Bureau. “Identifying health and developmental issues early in a child’s life is essential to obtaining long-term positive outcomes. Help Me Grow connects families — particularly new and expecting parents — with the needed resources and services.”
The impact of Help Me Grow Delaware is significant. The program has helped numerous families in the past decade by identifying their most imminent needs.  
Help Me Grow By the Numbers: 
Delaware 2-1-1 is a confidential, toll-free help hotline from the United Way and DPH. Families who call 2-1-1 can speak directly with Help Me Grow Delaware’s trained child development specialists, who will help them find services in their area. Specialists also utilize early detection screenings to identify potential developmental delays to guide parents, educators and providers to resources that will address these concerns.
