The RFP for Vroom Community Connectors is now open. Applications are due July 3. This Vroom Community Connectors RFP is a pilot project that will inform Best Starts for Kids in moving forward with additional opportunities. Best Starts will contract with Somali and Latino/Latina/LatinX community-based organizations. As we build community engagement for our Help Me Grow framework, we will use Vroom to engage with families and learn together. Vroom is a nationwide initiative that empowers parents and caregivers to play a proactive role in their children’s early brain development. As part of Best Starts, King County is using the Help Me Grow national framework to inform the development of a coordinated system to get families the information they need and to coordinate all available services within King County.
