 Help Me Grow/Healthy Families

Vinton County Help Me Grow Home Visiting & Healthy Families are programs for expectant parents and newborns thru age five that provide health and developmental education to parents so children can start school healthy and ready to learn. Help Me Grow provides building blocks to help families & children succeed. We  host play groups and community events to create a network of parents that can gain information from each other. The purpose of Help Me Grow is to provide the information, support and encouragement in your home--the natural environment that your baby and toddler live in. Our ultimate goal is to encourage parents and families to believe that they are their child’s best educator and authority.  We want to provide you with the most up to date information on parenting, de-stressing skills, and positive discipline methods to help you raise a new generation of happy healthy families!  Vinton County Healthy Families and Help Me Grow want to help you, your baby’s best teacher, never miss any window of opportunity for growth. We serve Vinton and Jackson counties.
