Community Services



Child Development Programs and Services (CDPS) recognizes the importance of providing additional services to the community and developing and strengthening community partnerships to support Butte County's youngest children.  Below are just a few ways that CDPS is leading the effort and serving its community.

Help Me Grow

Help Me Grow (HMG) is a national effort that promotes a comprehensive, coordinated system for early identification and referral to services for children at risk of developmental and behavioral concerns. It is also a hub for parents who have questions or concerns about how their child is growing, learning, speaking or behaving.
Funded by the First 5 Butte County Children's and Families Commission, Help Me Grow  is available all Butte County residents with children 0-5 regardless of income. To learn more visit
