Colin’s Hope Trains Home Visitors of Texas HIPPY

December 12, 2016 | Partnerships

Colin’s Hope was proud to train 140 Texas HIPPY (Home Instruction of Parents of Preschool Youngsters) home visitors from across the state to take our water safety education and resources directly to parents and children in their homes! A part of the AmeriCorps program, HIPPY home visitors provide parents with resources and education that will help them prepare their preschool-aged children for success. Partnerships like these are essential to the drowning prevention work Colin’s Hope strives for every day because this direct communication with families will truly increase our reach and impact while saving lives.

Thank you to the Texas Department of Family and Protective Services for giving Colin’s Hope the opportunity to meet Texas HIPPY at the annual Partners In Prevention Conference this past September. We look forward to strengthening this partnership in the coming year.
