Wilson had three children who benefited from the program, which prepares children from birth with tools they need for cognitive, social and emotional development.

"I saw what it did for my family and I saw what it did for other families," she said.

The rewards are plenty, considering the free cost, supporters said.

"All they would have to do is bring their kids and a change of clothes, and that's all," Wilson said.

Additionally, the program offers multiple resources for families including housing referrals and information on GED programs.    

For Okaloosans, Tippens’ influence, and the impact of going door to door 37 years ago, should be remembered, Jackson said.
