Who are we?
Child Health Investment Partnership is an early childhood home visiting program.
We pair low-income children, birth to first-grade entry, with a Community Health Nurse and Family Case Manager for health care coordination (help accessing needed medical services, assistance with the management of chronic conditions, and preventive services like fluoride dental varnish); developmental education, kindergarten preparation and regular child assessment and monitoring. Their families receive services like anticipatory child development guidance, employment and education support, parent meetings and transportation. These services work to help build parenting capacity and to provide support to families as they set and reach goals and move toward self-sufficiency.
We also offers supplemental case management services that target specific needs: Prenatal Case Management, Mental Health Case Management, and Asthma Case Management.
Our Vision, Mission and Core Values
Vision: Every child will have equal access to health care and enter school ready to learn.
Mission: Child Health Investment Partnership changes the lives of underserved children and their families through access to comprehensive healthcare services and community resources.
Core Values: We believe that interventions have the greatest impact when:
- Provided through an interdisciplinary approach, in partnership with parents, in the home setting;
- Initiated early in life (prenatal through first grade entry);
- Offered with dignity and respect in regards to cultures, beliefs and parenting styles;
- Provided using evidence-based practices and establish and emerging research.
