Who are we?
Child Health Investment Partnership (CHIP) of Roanoke Valley is an early childhood home visiting program. CHIP of Roanoke pairs pregnant moms, low-income children, birth to first-grade entry, and their guardians with a Community Health Nurse and Family Case Manager to help them access needed medical services, to assist with the management of chronic conditions and to provide developmental education, kindergarten preparation and regular child assessment and monitoring. These services work to help build parenting confidence and to provide support to families as they set and reach goals moving toward self-sufficiency.
We also offer supplemental case management services that target specific needs: Prenatal Case Management, Health Care Coordination, Family Strengthening, Medically Needy & NICU Case Management, Oral Health Support, Asthma Case Management and Mental Health Counseling.
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 established and emerging research.
