HIPPY is a parent involvement and school readiness program. The HIPPY program offers free home-based early childhood education for three, four and five-year-old children working with their parent(s) as their first teacher. HIPPY provides the parent with a set of developmentally appropriate materials, curriculum and books designed to strengthen their children’s cognitive skills, early literacy skills, social/emotional and physical development.
Cuyahoga Metropolitan Housing Authority (CMHA) owns and manages property and administers rent subsidy programs to provide eligible low-income persons quality, safe, affordable housing. CMHA’s Policy, Planning and Educational Initiatives department develops programs to enhance the quality of life of its residents. One of the programs offered is the Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY).
Programming for HIPPY has been available for residents for more than 21 years. We are proud to be the first Housing Authority nationwide that offers HIPPY programming as a part of the educational services for residents.
