Community Infant Program (CIP)
A program of Boulder County Public Health, the Community Infant Program (CIP) works with high-risk families to promote healthy attachments between parents and infants.
CIP services focus on positive parenting, healthy nutrition and feeding practices, and creating family support systems. Services are provided for a limited number of high-need families with children from birth to three years of age.
Shepherd reaches out to CIP by serving as a collection site for disposable diapers, food & formula, clothes, gear, baby furniture, and strollers.
The congregation also provides a Thanksgiving Food Box collection for CIP clients each year. As many as 120 complete Thanksgiving food boxes are typically provided to CIP clients each year.
We always have a need for disposable diapers for these families with young children. Current need is for sizes 1 and 2 especially, but any size is welcome.
