“I was a HIPPY mom.  I went back to school, earned a degree, and launched my career in home visiting and early childhood education.

HIPPY Alumni

As the saying goes, the proof is in the pudding.  We are proud when we see our youngsters walk across a stage as they graduate from their HIPPY program.

It further heartens us when our former, now adult,  HIPPY participants tell their stories of what HIPPY meant to them and the meaningful impact that we made on their lives. 


If you are a HIPPY Alumnus, call, email, Facebook, Instagram or Tweet us.  We want to hear from you. Keep you current about us.  Stay updated with you.  And if you have a young one taking part in HIPPY USA, we want to know. 

HIPPY changed my life, my mom's life, my family-everything.  I don’t know where I’d be without HIPPY.
