There is no greater investment to be made than in the building a brighter tomorrow one child and one family at a time. Whether your investment is time spent advocating for school readiness and parent involvement, volunteering to help as a HIPPY mentor, hosting a HIPPY event, or a donation to help offset thousands of dollars in federal match, everything you do makes a difference.
Without your support, the number of children who go without a preschool education will only increase. According to The State of Preschool, by the National Institute for Early Education Research, only 4% of Texas’ 3-year olds and 46% of 4-year olds are currently enrolled in Pre-K or Head Start.
We all win when a child succeeds in school. Studies show that children in early childhood education programs are more likely to score higher in reading and math, more likely to graduate from high school and attend college. For every dollar we invest in these programs, we get nearly $10 back in reduced welfare rolls, fewer health care costs, and less crime.
Take action and give now.
