Pregnant and parenting families with children from birth to 8 years of age now have a new tool to connect to services in the community that support healthy child development and family well-being.

Help Me Connect is a website designed to help Minnesota’s families navigate local community, county and state resources. Families and those that support families, such as preschool teachers, child care providers and pediatricians, can use Help Me Connect to find services such as:

  • Healthy development and screening
  • Developmental and behavior concerns
  • Disability services and resources
  • Early learning and child care
  • Family well-being and mental health
  • Tribal and American Indian resources
  • Dental care
  • Basic needs
  • Legal services
  • Peacetime emergency resources

Help Me Connect is an interagency collaboration between Minnesota’s Departments of Education, Health and Human Services.

Care providers and families can access Help Me Connect by visiting HelpMeConnectMN.org.
