Help Me Grow

The Riley Institute is an external evaluation partner with Help Me Grow South Carolina, assisting the program in collecting, analyzing, and using data to inform care coordination practices and understand the program’s impact on children and families across the state. Early outputs of the partnership include (1) a comprehensive, three-year report documenting the efforts, impacts, and growth of HMG SC across its first three years of implementation from 2013 to 2015, and (2) the development of a web-based survey to assess family satisfaction with HMG SC care coordinators following their first contact with the program.

An affiliate of the National Help Me Grow Network and housed within the Greenville Health System’s Bradshaw Institute for Community Child Health and Advocacy, Help Me Grow South Carolina (HMG SC) is a free program available to parents of children birth to age eight who live in Anderson, Greenville, Laurens, Oconee, Pickens, Spartanburg,  Charleston, Berkeley, Dorchester, Beaufort, Jasper, and Colleton counties.  HMG SC connects families to existing, community-based resources and services for children at risk of developmental, behavioral, and learning problems. Specifically, HMG SC promotes the health and well-being of young children by:

  • helping identify children with developmental, behavioral, and/or learning problems
  • connecting families to information and community resources related to child development and parenting
  • providing personalized care coordination
  • creating and facilitating partnerships within the community to improve the availability and quality of services for families
