Birth to Five Helpline Awareness Week Oct. 10-16

| October 11, 2022


By Southwest Human Development

Southwest Human Development, Arizona’s largest early childhood development nonprofit, will host its second annual “Birth to Five Helpline Awareness Week” (October 10-16, 2022) to spotlight the organization’s free support line for those who have questions or concerns about parenting and the early development of children from birth to age 5.

We encourage partners to use this toolkit to help highlight this critical resource for parents, caregivers and early childhood professionals. We have included graphics and sample language for social media posts, emails or other communications to make it easy for you to spread the word. Please feel free to adapt any of the information in this toolkit for your communications channels!

Do you want physical materials to promote the Birth to Five Helpline? Request Birth to Five Helpline materials by emailing community@swhd.org and we’ll be happy to mail you as many as you need. All collateral material is bilingual (English and Spanish) and we have them in bundles of 50. We currently have magnets, Helpline rack cards, Fussy Baby rack cards and Perinatal Care rack cards.
