HIPPY has been recognized by the independent research firm Mathematica as one of the first seven evidenced-based home visiting models with quality research showing significant outcomes – particularly in the areas of school readiness and positive parenting skills. As a result, HIPPY was included on the list of models that met the rigorous eligibility criteria for funding under the federal Maternal, Infant and Early Childhood Home Visiting Program (MIECHV).
Decades of research have shown the HIPPY model to be effective in improving school readiness, parent involvement, school attendance, classroom behavior and standardized test scores and academic performance by children participating in HIPPY.
Currently, HIPPY is taking part in seven diverse research projects at various HIPPY sites across the nation with goals to strengthen our mission, enhance our work and provide better service delivery to our family's unique needs.
The research collaborations are comprised of federal agencies, policy research organizations, universities, and other nonprofit organizations.
