Nurse Family Partnership

Helping First-Time Parents Succeed

The Nurse-Family Partnership is a voluntary program where specially trained nurses visit vulnerable women in their homes during their first pregnancy and throughout the first two years of their children’s lives to accomplish three goals:

  • Improve pregnancy outcomes by helping women improve their health-related behaviors, including reducing use of cigarettes, alcohol and illegal drugs.
  • Improve child health and development by helping parents provide more responsible and competent care for their children.
  • Improve families’ economic self-sufficiency by helping parents develop a vision for their own future, plan future pregnancies, continue their education and find work.
