Referral Line for Latino Families in King County

We are honored to join Best Starts for Kids as part of their Help Me Grow King County network of coordinated access partners. Our Early Childhood Resource and Referral line launched February 1, 2021.


Too often, referral services simply give families some numbers to call, leaving them to connect with these resources on their own. The Help Me Grow system is different. We guide Latino parents and caregivers in navigating the complex web of resources, so they gain access to services during these key development years for their children under five. Our Spanish-speaking Family Connectors contact the referral organization to confirm they are still providing services, and we stay involved to assist with any language barriers or other obstacles as they arise. Whether it’s childhood development screening, help finding a food bank, parenting classes or a low-cost medical clinic, our free resource line helps Latino families easily connect to the community resources that are best for them.


With our Early Childhood Resource and Referral line, Centro Rendu of St. Vincent de Paul will continue to support Latino immigrant families with culturally specific services to nurture healthy children, for generations to come.
