CHIP (Children’s Health Improvement

CHIP (Children’s Health Improvement Partnership of the New River Valley)

The Children’s Health Improvement Partnership (CHIP) of New River Valley continually builds and maintains a network of local public/private partnerships to improve the health status of young children in need and to support and enhance their family’s ability to move toward self sufficiency. CHIP builds on family strengths and promotes family empowerment.

The purpose of CHIP is to assist low-income families with children up to age 7 and pregnant women with access to medical and dental services and act as a link to other human service organizations/providers in the NRV. The CHIP model is unique to the New River Valley in that it offers comprehensive case management in the home where children receive consistent and comprehensive care in a familiar setting. CHIP services, provided by a nurse and a home visitor team, include helping families make and keep appointments and follow physician recommendations, educational home visits, parenting education, helping families set and reach personal and family goals, transportation to medical and dental appointments, medical case management, and referrals to other community-based services to help meet the multifaceted needs of families. All services emphasize prevention and early intervention.
