Nurse-Family Partnership

Nurse-Family Partnership

Help give babies born into poverty a brighter future.

Nurse-Family Partnership® is a community health program that truly changes lives – for generations to come.

Nurse-Family Partnership helps transform the lives of vulnerable first-time moms and their babies. Through ongoing home visits from registered nurses, moms living in poverty receive the care and support they need to have a healthy pregnancy, provide responsible and competent care for their children, and become more economically self-sufficient. From pregnancy until the child turns 2 years old, Nurse-Family Partnership nurse home visitors form a much-needed, trusting relationship with each new mom, instilling confidence and empowering them to achieve a better life for their children – and themselves.

Investing early in a child’s health through Nurse-Family Partnership improves the child’s development and opportunities for success later in life.  Based on over 35 years of proven research, Nurse-Family Partnership has shown to improve pregnancy outcomes, reduce child abuse and neglect, and improve children’s school readiness, among others.

Nurses help these young moms set goals to go back to school and pursue a career so that they become economically self-sufficient.  By helping to help break the cycle of poverty, Nurse-Family Partnership plays an important role in helping to improve the lives of society’s most vulnerable members, build stronger communities, and leave a positive impact on this and future generations.

The Nurse-Family Partnership National Service Office is a nonprofit organization that provides support to Nurse-Family Partnership programs in 43 states, the U.S. Virgin Islands and six tribal communities.

Private donations enable Nurse-Family Partnership to bring this proven program to more vulnerable families and communities. It’s a true high-impact investment – not only for the mom, but for her child and the community.

“Children are healthy. Families thrive. Communities prosper. Cycles are broken.”
