El Paso HIPPY on the Horizon

New programs usually start small, not so in El Paso! We are thrilled to announce that El Paso HIPPY will begin in Fall 2009 with 400 families! El Paso United Way has received an AmeriCorps grant from the Texas OneStar Foundation to have 38 AmeriCorps members who will serve as home visitors, and two full time coordinators to supervise, train and support them. HIPPY is returning to El Paso, having been there in the early 90's, through 1999, at Regionl 19 Education Service Center. We are looking for program partnerships, collaborations, donors and volunteers to further strengthen our new program in El Paso. Please contact me if you would like to get involved!
