Why CHIP? My involvement with CHIP goes back many years. CHIP is an excellent example of a thriving nonprofit with a well-defined mission helping to build a stronger community. CHIP partners with families who are often addressing many challenges to ensure their children are healthy in multiple ways, and ready for school. Through providing its own programs and additional community resources when needed, CHIP builds valuable relationships with our families. I am proud to be part of an organization addressing disparities in our community in a professional, dignified way. CHIP meets families where they are, in true partnership, while providing comprehensive services. My time with CHIP is time well spent.
