Nurse-Family Partnership

The Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) Program works by having specially trained nurses regularly visit first-time moms-to-be, starting early in the pregnancy and continuing through the child’s second birthday. The expectant moms benefit by getting the care and support they need to have a healthy pregnancy. At the same time, new mothers 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 mother's personal development
