Nurse-Family Partnership

The Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) Program provides nurse home visitation to families with limited financial support and for all teens younger than 19 years of age expecting their first child. The program begins between the 12th and 27th week of pregnancy and continues until the child’s second birthday.

Goals of the NFP program are to:

  • Promote healthier pregnancies
  • Improve children's health and development
  • Support mother's personal development

Nurse-Family Partnership provides first-time moms with specially trained nurses to help them be the best moms they can be!

We invite you to watch this short film (4 minutes) that illustrates the power of Nurse-Family Partnership.
