Strengthening Families and Help Me Grow (HMG) are closely aligned efforts focused on improving outcomes in early childhood. The purpose of this paper is to describe how the HMG Model currently aligns with the Strengthening Families Approach and Protective Factors Framework; how HMG affiliates are currently using Strengthening Families; and how we envision the introduction of goal concordant care (GCC) affecting HMG affiliates’ impact on families’ protective factors.
