Nurse-Family Partnership

The Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) Program works by having specially trained nurses regularly visit first-time parents, starting early in the pregnancy and continuing through the child’s second birthday. The expectant parents benefit from getting the care and support they need to have a healthy pregnancy. At the same time, new parents develop a close relationship with a nurse who becomes a trusted resource they can rely on for advice on everything from safely caring for their child to taking steps to provide a stable, secure future for them both.

NFP Program Goals

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

  • First-time pregnant individuals prior to the 29th week of pregnancy and who meet income requirements (see table below).
