Our Story

HIPPY is a home visitation program that serves as a catalyst for change at all levels — family, school, and community — by increasing school readiness and parent involvement.

Our Impact

HIPPY empowers parents as the primary educators of their children. We foster parent involvement in school and community life to maximize the chances of successful early school experiences.

AmeriCorps brings the ethic of community service and responsibility to the HIPPYCorps Home Instructors, while furthering their personal leadership and higher educational goals.

Get Involved

Just as Parent Involvement directly impacts the success of the child, community involvement is crucial to the success of Texas HIPPY.
