The event will be held in the center’s conference room, 1700 E. Sandusky St. It is free and open to the public.

The event will focus on Help Me Grow and Early Intervention. These programs are considered critical to children with developmental delays, and a panel of individuals with children in these programs will explain the process.

Parents or foster parents of children who might benefit from these programs are being encouraged to attend.

Child care will be available.
