By educating children and building stronger families, HIPPY enables parents to be
more involved in child education and welfare. As a result, communities and local
government will become more responsive to the needs of all people. HIPPY programs are implemented through community based agencies, school districts and a variety of nonprofit and public sector organizations across Texas.

Because of its adaptability to varying service delivery models, HIPPY programs
qualify for federal funding under Title I program, Child Care Development Block
Grants, partnerships with Head Start, and other federally supported initiatives such as AmeriCorps from the One Star Foundation.
