What We Do

Nurse-Family Partnership is a voluntary program, which partners registered nurses, highly trained in the model to first time pregnant women, early in their pregnancy.  The registered nurse provides home visitation to the client, from the beginning of her participation up until her child is two years old.  They will work together to accomplish goals, including:

Improve pregnancy outcomes by helping women engage in preventive health practices, obtaining thorough prenatal care from their healthcare providers, improving their diet, and engaging in healthy lifestyles

Improve child health and development by helping parents provide responsible and competent care for their children

Improve the economic self sufficiency of the family by helping parents develop a vision for their own future, plan future pregnancies, continue their education and find work.
