HIPPY Model

 HIPPY is an evidence-based home visiting program that supports parents in their critical role as their child's first and most important teacher.

 

HIPPY USA is the national non-profit that provides HIPPY to communities across the country. Our mission is to partner with parents to prepare their children for success in school.

 

Through local affiliates, HIPPY’s curriculum is provided at no cost to 15,000 families living in the United States.  Decades of research have shown the HIPPY model to be effective in improving school readiness, parent involvement, school attendance, and standardized test scores in reading and math throughout elementary school.

 

A unique aspect of HIPPY is its scripted curriculum, highlighted below,  is used to teach parents through a peer-to-peer approach, using role-play and interactive activities. This system not only provides one-to-one training for the parent, but it also offers specialized job training for our home visitors and fosters leadership development and career advancement opportunities for our staff and our parents. That's why over 50% of our home visitors are former HIPPY parents!
