Give your child super powers!

In the action-packed Super Me! game, children pick a home and create a family – as the game progresses, players meet other characters in the neighborhood and engage in mini-games, such as soccer practice. Users earn points, superhero accessories and levels by completing special challenges.


Is your family ready for the next disaster?

Help Kids Cope helps adults understand how children commonly respond during and after disasters and offers checklists to help families prepare for natural disasters. The app also features tips on speaking to children before, during and after a natural disaster.

We want to be your health care partner!
