Hi Melissa I am wondering how through our agency, All About Kids , we can help our famiiles access needs for diapers. .Besides AAK providing Early Intervention Program evals and services , we are a CMA- care management agency, where we help our families connect to needed resources. Knowing how to provide diapers, and other resources, would be great- thank you Cathy Grossfeld All About Kids Cathy.grossfeld@aakcares.com

What is the most efficient route that a child care provider can refer to HMG?
Laraib Humayun
45:13
Cathy - Thank you for your question. Help Me Grow-Long Island has connections with agencies and programs that provide basic needs supplies like diapers, wipes, and other baby items. You can refer families to HMG-LI to get connected to these resources. Families can call us directly at 516-548-8924, or call 2-1-1 and select option 7 for HMG-LI!

Do you find as much need in children >5 years of age and if so, who would you refer them to after they age out from your services?
Laraib Humayun
53:31
Kapritia - thank you for your questions. We do find that children >5 are often enrolled in education, child care, or community programs that allow for opportunities to address their needs, and if not, when aging out we will try to get them connected to these systems. We also find that children under 5 are less connected to those same systems, creating unique unmet needs for this population.
Laraib Humayun
55:39
The best way for all providers (medical, child care, community, etc.) to refer families to Help Me Grow-Long Island is with the Universal Provider Referral Form. You can email the completed form to info@hmgli.org or fax to 516-217-1351.Once you make a referral with this form, Family Resource Specialists will stay in touch with you to provide regular updates about our work with the family.

That is a great point, thank you. We have a lot of patients that have needs that come to our practices in Riverhead and Southold. your organization would be a great resource for those patients.
