2018 Annual Report
CHIP Friends and Partners, Every day, the CHiP staff hear stories of family: stories of challenges, stories of fear, stories of happiness, stories of hope. In many ways, CHIP workers are key supporting characters as these stories unfold, and your support plays a critical role in writing happier, healthier stories. Our deepest thanks to each of you for being part of the CHiP family in 2018. Our partnership with local families to help them provide nurturing homes and raise healthy children includes everyone in our community every day as we work to improve the lives of children. In 2018, our work together positively affected the lives of 540 babies and young children, throughout Albemarle, Charlottesville, Fluvanna and Louisa. Instead of facing challenges and uncertainty alone, our local families have CHiPâ€™s support. We hope you will join us in writing more stories of hope and success for our CHiP children in the coming year. CHIP means childrenâ€™s health, and your support means more children will grow up healthy and ready to succeed in school and in life. Thank you for your support! With warmest regards,

CHiPâ€™s mission is to partner with
families to create nurturing home environments and promote the health and well-being of children in our community. Our dedicated teams of community health nurses and professional family support workers meet with families in their home to:
Promote family health and well-being through health assessments, health education, and improved access to health care.
Enhance parenting skills and confidence through a developmentally appropriate curriculum and trusting relationships.
Foster self-sufficiency by partnering with families to set goals, solve problems, and connect with community resources.
Last year, CHiP staff made
3,940 home visits
throughout Charlottesville, Albemarle, Fluvanna, and Louisa counties.
540 children in 342 families benefited from the work of CHiP and our community of support.

CHiPâ€™s home visiting program is effective because of the trusted relationships our diverse, knowledgeable, and compassionate staff build with CHiP families.
CHiP works. Data shows that after one year with CHiP: 98% of children have a medical home for sick and prenatal care. 97% of parents demonstrate positive parent-child interactions. 94% of children are up to date on their immunizations. 90% of children met essential milestones on the Ages and Stages developmental screening tool, and those who need further assessments receive them.
87% of children are up to date on well-child care. 84% of age-eligible children were enrolled in preschool or child care. 76% of CHiP babies have been breastfed. 60% of families have at least one parent employed. 16% of children had a newly identified developmental delay. 3% of children needed dental care and did not receive it. 0% of children needed medical care and did not receive it. The earliest years of a childâ€™s life are critical for brain development, for growth, and for long-term health. If we donâ€™t support healthy development in children, we arenâ€™t going to have healthy adults to carry on the work of community.
Improving Birth Outcomes
Families enrolled in CHiP are less likely to have low birthweight and preterm babies. On average, 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.
Addressing Disparities in Health Care
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. CHiPâ€™s Neighborhood Outreach Project has created a downtown team dedicated to serving our historically African American neighborhoods. In addition, two part-time health educators were hired from within the community, all with the goal of building relationships and being a trusted neighborhood resource.
Reaching the Hard-to-Reach
Isolation, transportation, and limited access to services and resources are real obstacles for some families living in our rural communities. Home visits can be uniquely valuable to these parents desiring the kind of support that CHiP offers.
Equipping Pregnant and Parenting Teens for Success
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.
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.
“I was feeling very defeated and CHiP was there to say, “Hey, everything is going to be OK, and we’re going to help you get there. We’re going to help you reach your goals; we’re going to help you get through this hard time in your life.” -Tracy, CHiP mom and 2018 Imagine Award honoree.
Because every parent wants to be the best parent they can be.
Tracy’s Story When Tracy enrolled in CHiP, her sons were 3 and 6. She had lost her husband in an automobile accident and then her home to foreclosure. Her oldest son began having behavioral issues at school, and both boys were having behavioral issues at home. Besides the usual challenges of parenting two active boys, Tracy was in crisis. Tracy worked with her CHiP team on parenting strategies that would increase her confidence in addressing problem behaviors as well as a variety of typical child development issues. Her team connected her to resources that would help address her son’s speech delay, find affordable childcare and preschool options, and get her finances in order. CHiP was also able to help Tracy address her own mental health and unresolved grief by connecting her to in-home mental health counseling services. The encouragement and support Tracy received from her knowledgable and compasssionate CHiP team has given her the confidence and resources to provide a home where she and her boys can heal and thrive.
In fact, at families’ annual updates, the Survey of Parenting Practices show: • a 45% increase in Parenting Knowledge • a 35% increase in Parenting Confidence • a 36% increase in Parenting Ability • a 34% increase in positive Parenting Behaviors
For families enrolled more than 15 months, those numbers increased to: • a 112% increase in Parenting Knowledge • a 89% increase in Parenting Confidence • a 64% increase in Parenting Ability • a 104% increase in positive Parenting Behaviors
