Yazmin, a mom of two, was connected to our Home Instruction for Parents of Preschool Youngsters (HIPPY) program when she realized her son Ruben was struggling with a speech delay. Yazmin found a community of supportive coaches and parents who helped her support Ruben’s development. Ruben is now thriving!
During our first Women United Village, more than 100 families received supplies to help care for their little ones, including diapers, strollers, car seats, and more.
On June 12, 2021 Mile High United Way was thrilled to celebrate the first-ever graduation ceremony for HIPPY students and their parents.
