About us


What We Do:
For over 20 years, the Brazelton Touchpoints Center has collaborated with partners nationwide to establish scalable and sustainable, low-cost, low-tech interventions that propel children’s healthy development and build the internal capacity of – and strengthen the collaborative relationships among – families, parents, caregivers, providers, and communities. With our partners, the Brazelton Touchpoints Center engages in three principal areas of activity that are critical to attaining our long-term vision:

1.  Professional and Organizational Development

Capacity and Systems Building: to activate and strengthen the intrinsic capacity of individuals, organizations, and communities to build and sustain collaborative relationships with and among families, their children, and each other.

2.  Knowledge Development

  • Nationwide Learning Network: to assure a multi-source knowledge base for accumulating and sharing knowledge, strategies, and solutions; and a community of practice to support efforts to expand collective learning.
  • Evaluation: to contribute to continuous field-wide practice and policy improvements by evaluating professional practices, programs, and community-wide systems.
  • Knowledge: to activate, in partnership with others, the construction, implementation, and dissemination of effective practices and innovative place-based, culturally-affirming, community-wide initiatives in the policy and practice realms.
3.  Advocacy and Awareness
  • Advocacy: to contribute and leverage cogent, credible knowledge to strengthen practices and policies that fosters the health and well-being of the next generation.
  • Awareness: to provide a credible voice elevating and explaining the imperative of policies, practices, and investments that foster the health and well-being of the next generation.
