Upcoming Events

“When we strengthen families, we ultimately strengthen the community. Our goal is that parents everywhere work with supportive providers, feel confident in their parenting role, and form strong, resilient attachments with their children. To help achieve this, providers must be responsive to parents, knowledgeable about child development, and eager to see every parent succeed.”

—T. Berry Brazelton, MD


Vision

A world in which every child experiences love, joy, and wonder and grows up to be an adult who can strengthen our communities’ capacity for self-determination, cope with adversity, advance racial and economic equity, steward our planet’s fragile resources, and experience the joy of nurturing the next generation to do the same. Every child is all our children.

Mission

To partner with family-facing providers, researchers, advocates, policymakers, and their institutions to listen to and amplify the unheard voices of babies, children, and families, and to co-create with them practical, incremental solutions to the challenges they express.

Values

The Brazelton Touchpoints Center (BTC) is committed to creating equitable and inclusive opportunities for learning and growth through collaborative, strengths-based, culturally-affirming approaches within its own organization and in its partnerships with all others.

Equity, Diversity, Inclusion, Belonging, and Antiracism Statement

At BTC, we are dedicated to creating a lasting community in which equity, diversity, inclusion, belonging, and antiracism thrive. We engage in reflective practices to enhance equitable processes and outcomes, and to reduce bias — including our own. At BTC, we come alongside and learn with the infants, children, families, and communities that we have the honor of working with. While we still have much work to do, we see the path to racial equity and justice as a journey — one that we have wholeheartedly embarked on. BTC is committed to creating equitable and inclusive opportunities for learning and growth through collaborative, strengths-based, culturally-affirming approaches within our organization and in our partnerships with all others.
