We love helping parents and children connect to resources through Help Me Grow and First 5 Contra Costa. The Contra Costa Crisis Center’s 211 information and referral service now has trained developmental specialists available! We help parents navigate to programs and resources their child needs. If you are a parent of children age 0-5, start here with our #HMGCoCo information or call 211.

Rep. DeSaulnier is carrying a bill this year that would significantly increase federal funding for developmental services. As a result, children who need help can be identified sooner and get help faster.
Help Me Grow focuses on early detection, referral, and treatment for children with developmental or behavioral concerns.
Our free program supports babies, young children, and the people who love them.
Help Me Grow Contra Costa can answer parents’ everyday questions about their children, from ages 0-5.
We also connect families to local resources for free screening of children 0-5 to check how they are growing and developing. Parents and caregivers can call 211 anytime 24/7.
