- You will need to be interviewed before you start working as a HIP.
- We will ask you to commit to a regular schedule.
- You will be able to work as little as 3 or more than 20 hours per week. It’s up to you.
- You will be asked for a 3-month commitment.
- Free Meals

Parent-Child Home Program
The Parent-Child Home Program is an evidence-based national program that trains Home Visitors to go once or twice a week into the homes of families with children 2 or 3 yrs. old. Each visit models positive interactions between the parent and the child. Once a week they take a book or a toy to give to the family and to model for the parent who to interact with their child. This goes on for two 23 week cycles. This calls for a commitment of 6 hours a week to work with two families. This is a great program for retirees.
