"Nothing is more important than a child's early years.  CHIP is in the forefront of ensuring kids get a good start in life, beginning before birth with prenatal care and continuing until a child enters school, well-prepared for the next part of their life. The work CHIP is doing today will pay dividends to our community for decades to come.  You can't find a better investment than CHIP." - Bob Powers
