Best Starts strives for all babies in King County to grow up happy, healthy, safe, and thriving. Our Help Me Grow King County (HMGKC) strategy supports resource navigation and serves as a foundation for all our prenatal to five strategies. HMGKC funds community-based organizations that provide resources and services to pregnant women and people, babies, and young children and their caregivers, during their critical developmental years.
Through the Help Me Grow request for proposals (RFP), organizations shared how they engage with families in a warm and engaging way while connecting and guiding them through complex services and resource systems tailored to their needs.
