N is for New Grant!
We got the good news that our AmeriCorps proposal was granted for a 3 year period! Congratulations to us!
This means that we have three more years of funding to implement the AmeriCorps model of community service onto the HIPPY model of Parent Involvement and School Readiness. We will have 52 AmeriCorps Members serving in 10 communities across the state. They will be bringing HIPPY to 15-20 families each week, and challenging those parents to not only work with their own child daily but to give back to their communities by volunteering in their child's school.
We're proud to have been selected again, and to be able to continue this work in the community. Thanks to everyone who assisted with the grant proposal and to all the HIPPY Coordinators, Home Visitors, Parents and Children for making us look great!
