Child Health Partnership

Our History
Child Health Partnership has decades of experience in the communities we serve, as well as the agility needed to respond to the complex and changing needs of today’s families.

Child Health Partnership began its community nursing services through the Thomas Jefferson Health District in the Virginia Department of Health in 1991. In 2008, we became an independent nonprofit organization known as the Jefferson Area Children’s Health Improvement Program (CHIP). In October 2019, we renamed our organization Child Health Partnership to more clearly convey our focus on child health.

Our staff reflects the diversity of the families we serve. About half of our families are newcomers from other countries. We support them with bilingual staff and interpreters to help ease the complexity of communicating about the health care needs of their children.  We strive to meet all our families where they are with the best support we can provide.
