CHIP IN Batavia: To support students in temporary or transitioning housing situations or who are facing the obstacles of poverty in Batavia.

C.H.I.P.  I.N. - Community Helpers Impacting People In Need

 

We are working with Kiwanis Club, Batavia Women's Club, Batavia United Way,  Batavia Foundation for Educational Excellence, and other local groups and individuals to help specific families when the school district counselors or Director of Student Services/Homeless Liaison or Community Outreach Coordinator provides this information.  CHIP IN can make a huge difference to these students and their families, providing security, clothing, basic needs, school supplies, summer activities, and the knowledge that their community cares about them.  The support from our community has been overwhelming and you have all helped to make a huge difference in many students' lives.

CHIP IN Batavia

 

Our Mission

To ensure that BPS 101 students that are facing the obstacles of poverty and/or temporary housing have the support they need to be successful in school.  CHIP IN Batavia is a restricted fund within the Batavia Foundation for Educational Excellence, a 501-c-3 organization.  100% of your donation is used for students--No one is paid to run this group and there are no administrative costs...it is all done by volunteers.

 

The Plan



Each BPS 101 District School has an "in-house" point person and a CHIP IN Batavia representative assigned to them.  Area church groups, Batavia Rotary, Batavia Woman's Club, Kiwanis,

and other interested groups and individuals  aid the CHIP IN representative as individual needs arise at the school.  The goal is for CHIP IN to support children that have been pre-qualified by the school district by providing needed snacks, school supplies, and basic necessities that enable the opportunity to thrive and learn during the school year.   This is done while preserving dignity and anonymity. 

 

 

What is a temporary housing situation?

  • Living in a shelter or motel
  • Sharing housing with relatives because you lost your housing
  • Living in a campground, car, old building or other temporary shelter
  • No permanent address

 

What are the rights of these families?

  • To enroll their child in school immediately, even without school or medical records
  • Get help from the district liaison with immunizations and/or medical records.
  • To choose the child's previous school or school closest to where are are living now.
  • Get transportation to school for their child
  • Dispute enrollment to school for their child
  • Participate in their child's education.
