Growing Great Kids
Michelle Miller of the Tennessee-based Growing Great Kids program led a four-day training session for eight home visitors with the Help Me Grow agency at the Jefferson County Educational Service Center in Steubenville. The program, which was provided through the Ohio Department of Health, focused on the Growing Great Kids curriculum used with clients in the home. Help Me Grow Home Visiting, which is sponsored locally by JCESC and the Harrison Hills City School District, serves about 200 families in Jefferson, Harrison, Carroll and Belmont counties and offers expectant or new parents information and support they need to be prepared for the birth of their child, as well as ongoing education and support to maximize their child’s health and development to age 5.
