Help Me Grow is a program for expectant parents, newborns, infants and toddlers that provides health and developmental services to children so they start school healthy and ready to learn. All services are designed with the individual family's concerns and goals in mind. Services are voluntary and free. Help Me Grow is an Ohio Department of Health program available in all eighty-eight counties in Ohio through the county Family and Children First Councils. The program is designed to bring together several systems of care for early childhood to provide a comprehensive package of service for families and their children age zero to three.

What's the difference between Help Me Grow and Early Intervention?
Essentially, there is no difference. If you are enrolled in Help Me Grow, you get Early Intervention Services, though some parents pay for their own therapies and do not use HCDDS. If you are in Early Intervention, you are in Help Me Grow.
