The Community Infant Program (CIP) works with high-risk families to promote healthy attachments between parents and infants. Nurses and mental health therapists provide services in the home for parents who experience difficulty in adjusting to a new infant or young child.
These services focus on positive parenting, healthy nutrition and feeding practices, and creating family support systems.
The CIP Program also help families identify any health problems, and guide them to appropriate health care services. Services are provided for a limited number of high-need families with children from birth to three years of age.
