How We Help:
CHIP Facilitators meet with participants to promote the development of Aboriginal Parent Groups to provide guidance,
advice and a link to resources and/or programs that lead to a stronger and brighter future for Aboriginal families and
CHIP Facilitators work to strengthen the physical, cultural, emotional and spiritual security of the Aboriginal family
unit through access to services like prenatal care, nutrition, parenting skills, recreational facilities and any other
activities or programs that the Aboriginal family or child(ren) may require.
CHIP Facilitators help organize and support the Aboriginal Parent Groups to implement events, workshops, programs
and other activities that the Parent Groups see as needed within their areas.
