Mission

CHIP works with families, caught in the cycle of poverty, who are committed to creating a better life for their children and themselves, using proven best practices to intervene early and prepare parents to be their child's first and most important teacher.

CHIP’s goals are twofold: to ensure that young children living in low-income families receive consistent, quality health care prenatally through age six; and to provide a family-centered case management system that fosters health, stability, good parenting and self-sufficiency.


Impact

CHIP goals ensure that young children living in low-income families receive consistent, quality health care prenatally through age six through a family-centered case management system that fosters health, stability, good parenting, and self-sufficiency.

Though CHIP families are at greatest risk of negative life outcomes their outcomes consistently meet or exceed the Healthy People 2020 targets. In FY 2015 CHIP programs served 2,846 families, 3,684 children and 484 pregnant women with more than 21,000 home visits provided. Among children enrolled for a year, 94% have health insurance (vs. 80% at baseline), 95% have a medical home (81% baseline) and 90% are up-to-date or on-track with their immunizations (78% baseline). Outcomes related to self-sufficiency include: 44.3% of families with at least one year of CHIP services have one or both parents employed (compared to 33.8% at enrollment), a 62.5% reduction in the number of families with 2 or more moves during the year and a 34.1% reduction in the number of families with unmet food needs during the year.

School readiness begins at birth. Low birth weight can lead to cognitive problems and difficulty in school.

In the past 5 years more than 2,000 medically or socially high-risk pregnant women have enrolled in CHIP for an average of 4-9 months. Of those only 12% delivered prematurely and 9% delivered low birth weight babies compared to 20% and 16% respectively among those enrolled for 3 months or less.

62.2% of women enrolled before the third trimester initiated breastfeeding with their baby while 42.5% of the third-trimester-enrollees breastfed. A recent evaluation showed that when pregnant women received services tangible savings were identified for the infants during their first year of life. Infants whose mothers participated in the Partners in Pregnancy Program spent 44% fewer days in neonatal intensive care at a savings of $2,300 per infant in medical claims during their first year.


Needs
Recent national studies have demonstrated positive results of home visitation for young children and their parents including improved family health and well-being, improved school readiness and success, improved family functioning, and reduced costs.

In Virginia, while home visiting program services are available in the majority of localities, on average they serve fewer than 10% of eligible families. Through an intensive research and planning process, the Virginia Home Visiting Consortium (HVC) identified the need to develop a more strategic approach to expanding local capacity to serve more of Virginia’s eligible population.

CHIP of Virginia (COV) and Prevent Child Abuse Virginia (PCAV), along with the HVC, have missions to improve health, development, safety, and quality of life for children and their families. A unified approach through consolidation will allow the organization(s) to achieve its mission more effectively and, over time, reach more children and families with quality services and education. A consolidated organization will strengthen the field of home visiting locally, regionally and statewide and reach more families with prevention strategies.

Background CHIP of Virginia, the Comprehensive Health Investment Project, is a statewide, private nonprofit network of health-focused home visiting programs serving low-income pregnant women, children from birth to age six and their families. CHIP works with families, caught in the cycle of poverty, who are committed to creating a better life for their children and themselves, using proven best practices to intervene early and prepare parents to be their child's first and most important teacher.

Founded in 1992, CHIP of Virginia is an award-winning network of six programs serving 27 communities state-wide. CHIP serves low-income pregnant women and families whose children, aged 0-6, face serious threats to positive futures. CHIP teams work with families in their homes to encourage behaviors during pregnancy, coach families on child health and development and help families develop plans for work, education and self-sufficiency.

Home visits are the primary service delivery component of the CHIP model. The CHIP outreach team consists of a parent educator and registered nurse. They coach families on how to take advantage of appropriate community resources and help parents learn to solve life's problems. CHIP registered nurses are a key component of the home-visiting model because they provide critical health and developmental assessments. During these visits, nurses share appropriate pregnancy and child development information and encourage pregnant women to focus on nutrition and wellness. This intensive case management system provides consistent support and encouragement, as well as ongoing monitoring and reinforcement of healthy behaviors. CHIP's holistic approach addresses both the underlying framework of poor health management and the deeper, social environment which allows it to develop in the first place.

CHIP of Virginia is also the State Office of Parents As Teachers, an evidenced-based parent education program that is used by the CHIP programs.
