CHIP stands for Children’s Health Involving Parents because the program partners with parents to make sure children are healthy and ready to learn. Our belief is that comprehensive health care and a nurturing environment are the cornerstones of every young child’s physical and emotional development and the foundations of school readiness, effective learning, and future success. CHIP helps families become more stable and independent because it works with them in the home to develop unique solutions based on the family’s specific needs.
