Invest in Results!
For years, HHI has served tens-of-thousands of vulnerable children, their mothers, fathers and heath providers. We've heard incredible stories from them, such as "no babies have died since [HHI]", and "my baby is healthier, stronger, and smarter, because of what I learned from HHI".
But this year, HHI's warm and fuzzy stories are proven out in quantifiable, cold, hard statistics. HHI is achieving results similar to programs that take longer, cost more, and reach far fewer in need.

It would be comparable to hazards like lead paint, tobacco smoke and mercury. We would do everything in our power to contain it and keep it far away from children. Right?
