CHIP changes lives, two generations at a time.

Our Mission

CHIP works with families, caught in the cycle of poverty. Families who are committed to creating a better life for their children and themselves. Using proven best practices to intervene early, CHIP prepares parents to be their child’s first and most important teacher.

Our Goals

CHIP’s goals are twofold: to ensure that young children living in low income families receive consistent, quality health care prenatally through age six; and to provide a family-centered case management system that fosters health, stability, good parenting, and self-sufficiency.
