Who We Are

Growing Up Healthy envisions a Rice County in which diverse populations are connected to each other and are active participants in creating a community where all families thrive. We work with partner organizations and Latinx and immigrant families to transform communities through cultivating neighborhood leadership, fostering social connectedness, and collectively advocating for systems-level change.

What We Do


We help families with young children connect with early learning opportunities.

We work alongside community members to host neighborhood gatherings to encourage community connections.

We collaborate with numerous community partners to make sure systems are working for all kids and families.
