National Forum: Family Event

It's hard to capture all of the fun that we've been having over the past few days here at Help Me Grow Utah!  

We have been so privileged to host the 4th Annual Help Me Grow National event, right here in our backyard!  Amazing people from all over the country, have come to visit and share their experiences, passions, stories, and love - for families.

Each state has it's own journey developing the Help Me Grow model, because of the diverse people, cultures, situations from which they come from, and challenges they face in trying to bring families the resources they need for healthy children, but everyone is making it happen in their own creative ways.

I believe we are all more alike than we are different.  It's been so much fun learning from each other, and helping one another to reach our goals. 

Some of the people coming to the conference decided to visit one of our family events that we held in Salem.  Family events are one way we love sharing information about the Help Me Grow model, and get the kiddos connected right into services they may need.  We will actually have the Ages and Stages questionnaire right there, along with information for the parents to take home.  

As you can see, it's just as much fun for the volunteers as it was for the children!
