“As a school superintendent I accompanied teachers on dozens of home visits. What I witnessed was that home visits tear down barriers, grow relationships and serve the whole child in a way that a meeting in a public school setting can’t.
At the Stuart Foundation, we believe in strengthening the relationships between the child, the teacher and the parent/family/community because all three must be partners in learning. By supporting these relationships we can better understand how to leverage that strength into improving the entire education system.”

“PTHVP honors the commitment, love and support that educators, families, and community members have for the young people in our public schools. There are few organizations that make such a difference in the lives of students, their families, and educators.”
–Andrea Prejean, Director of Teacher Quality, National Education Association
