Help Me Grow – Goal Concordant Care
Help Me Grow, an organization made up of affiliates throughout the nation, is built on a system model that emphasizes the importance of identifying and networking available community resources to optimize early childhood care. HOPE is one of four partner organizations working with Help Me Grow to implement and evaluate goal concordant care in select affiliates. Help Me Grow defines goal concordant care as “A strength-based approach to eliciting parents’ goals for their child’s well-being that ensures parents’ goals drive the process of developmental promotion, early identification of concern and need, referral and linkage. An opportunity for HMG to advance a paradigm shift where parents and caregivers are partners in decision-making, and resources provided are in concordance with the goals, aspirations, and values of the family.” Specifically, HOPE will focus on outreach to health care providers with the Help Me Grow network and will apply the HOPE framework to the implementation of goal concordant care.
