Patsy Hampton

Senior Associate and Director, EC-LINC

She, Her, Hers


I am a member of the Young Children and Their Families team, and lead the EC-LINC initiative. There are many different kinds of activities within the network, but all are aimed at creating local systems where families and their young children can thrive.

I do this work because

I am inspired by the successful ways in which communities are joining together to create better opportunities, services, and supports for young children and their families.

I am most proud of

The work EC-LINC communities are doing to implement DULCE, a pediatric innovation that focuses on changing the healthcare experience of families in the earliest days of their baby’s life.

When the day is done

I unwind by cooking, gardening, and taking walks in my neighborhood.
