CHiP Friends and Partners, Our deep thanks to each of you for all your support in 2017. As we partner with local families to help them to provide nurturing homes and raise healthy children, we count on all of our community supporters and partners every day. The teamwork among CHiP parents and our staff leads to healthy, school-ready children. And each of you are part of the CHiP team as well. Our work together improved the lives of 567 babies and young children in 2017, throughout Albemarle, Charlottesville, Fluvanna, and Louisa. As local families face the challenges and uncertainty of 2018, they do not do it alone. Their CHiP team is ready to help them overcome the barriers they will meet in building strong families and loving homes. CHiP means childrenâ€™s health, and your support means more children grow up healthy and ready to succeed in school and in life. Thank you! With warmest regards,
Sharla Klingel Jon Nafziger Chair, CHiP Board of Directors Executive Director

75 pregnant moms received prenatal case management. Families enrolled in CHiP are less likely to have low birthweight and preterm babies, and CHiP babies spend 44% fewer days in the NICU. A year of CHiP services costs approximately $3,500 compared to a single day in the NICU which costs more than $3,000.
enrolled in our Parenteen program. Through education, home visits, and peer support, teens learn how to have healthy babies, parent well, stay in school, set goals, and postpone having more children. Thatâ€™s making an impact... two generations at a time.
87 refugee families
were served by our diverse and culturally competent staff last year. CHiP works with families to overcome whatever obstacles they may face in meeting the health and developmental needs of their children. For refugee families resettled in the Charlottesville area, that work requires an acute cultural sensitivity and understanding the impact of trauma. And of course, language is one of the first barriers these families face. CHiP staff rely on interpreter services to help families meet the challenges of starting over in a new country, and thanks to the generosity of our community, over $16,000 was donated in 2017 specifically to help defray these expenses.

â€œOur chief objectives are meeting families where they are, learning what their goals are, what their struggles are, and working with them to prioritize our work together to best address their needs.â€? ~Rosemary Heflin, Family Support Supervisor
served by the Neighborhood Outreach Project.
2017 was a challenging year in our community. A distrust of systems and institutions can be a barrier to the health and well being of local children and families and contributes to disparities in care and outcomes. Thanks to a grant from the Adiuvans Foundation, CHiP launched the Neighborhood Outreach Project, placing a team downtown dedicated to serving our historically African American neighborhoods. In addition, three part-time health educators were hired from within the community, all with the goal of building relationships and being a trusted neighborhood resource.
â€œWhere we live and how we live, our environment, very much impacts our health. Even stress. When families are under a lot of stress, we have research now that tells us that it affects how a childâ€™s brain develops.â€? ~Tessa Gerberich, RN
62 families 103 children served in rural Louisa and Fluvanna counties. Isolation, transportation, and limited access to services and resources are real obstacles for some families living in our rural communities. In this context, home visits are uniquely valuable to parents desiring the kind of support that CHiP nurses and family support workers bring. This year we combined our Louisa and Fluvanna programs in one location at Zion Crossroads. CHiP staff benefit from better peer and supervisory support, and families benefit from the improved collaboration and pooling of resources.
