About Us

 HIPPY USA is a 33-year-old national nonprofit headquartered in Little Rock, Arkansas, with a mission to help parents prepare their children for success in school. At present, HIPPY USA works with 126 independent affiliates in 20 states and the District of Columbia that serve 14,000 children.   The organization carries out its mission through an evidence-based curriculum geared toward parents of two to five-year-olds. For one hour each week for 30 weeks, a peer coach/home visitor trains parents on age-appropriate curricula that include foundational concepts in literacy, math, science, and social studies. In turn, parents spend 20 minutes a day teaching their child. Participation for families is at no charge, and the curriculum is available in English and Spanish with online options. 

 

As the National Office, HIPPY USA:

·         provides training and technical assistance to existing programs and guidance to communities interested in starting new programs; 

·        works to develop and improve the HIPPY curriculum;

·         collects data on local program operations and develops and coordinates research opportunities and evaluation efforts; and 

·        supports the communications, fundraising, and advocacy work of the sites.
