Vision, Mission, Values

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


The vision of the Brazelton Touchpoints Center is that all children grow up to be adults who can cope with adversity, strengthen their communities, constructively participate in civic life, steward our planet’s resources, and experience the joy of nurturing the next generation to be prepared to do the same.

We partner with families of young children and the communities and systems of care that surround them so that all children – whatever their life circumstances, challenges, and resources may be – will be healthy, succeed as early learners and have the opportunity to thrive.

Value Statement:

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