Help Me Grow Home Visiting
Help Me Grow Home Visiting is a voluntary family support program for pregnant women or new parents. Offered in every county of the state through a well-established network, Help Me Grow Home Visiting is an evidence-based program that promotes healthy growth and development for babies and young children. Our home visitors are well-trained professionals who use a non-judgmental and compassionate approach that empowers parents with skills, tools and confidence to nurture the healthy growth of their children.
Help Me Grow Home Visiting believes all young children deserve the same opportunities to realize their full potential in life, regardless of economic, geographic, and demographic considerations. The parenting education and child development resources provided to families allows them to maximize this critical period of development in their child’s life, providing a foundation for lasting success.
When a parent schedules a home visit with Help Me Grow Home Visiting, they will have the opportunity to share their thoughts about parenting, ask questions, and receive reliable information based on their individual family needs or topics of interest. Topics may include, but are not limited to:
- Healthy Pregnancies
- Baby and Child Health
- Child Growth and Development
- Toilet Training
- Child Safety
- Household Safety
- Local Resources

When Monyana found out she was going to be a single mother, she relied on assistance from Catholic Charities and the Help Me Grow home-based program. “I got great resources through Catholic Charities,” Moyana says. Those included clothing, diapers and a place to call home when her living situation became unsteady. Monyana also benefited from insights shared with her by Christine, her Help Me Grow caseworker. Learning to bond with a baby and recognizing milestones in infant growth are among the vital skills Monyana has gleaned through Help Me Grow. Today, Monyana is the proud mother of one-year-old girl named Manama. “If I hadn’t found Catholic Charities, I might have given up on being a mother,” Monyana says.
