Help Me Grow


Using data housed within the System for Tracking Access to Referrals (STAR) database, the Center is compiling a three-year report documenting the efforts, impacts, and growth of Help Me Grow South Carolina (HMG SC) between 2013 and 2015. The goal of this study is to provide HMG SC with information that can be used for decision-making related to program expansion, outreach, and delivery of services.

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, HMG SC is a free program available to parents of children birth to age eight who live in Greenville, Pickens, Charleston, Berkeley, and Dorchester 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
