Nurse Family Partnership

Nurse-Family Partnership is a national evidence-based maternal and child home visiting service for expectant first-time mothers and their newborns. We pair expectant mothers with a registered nurse, who provides free, intensive home visiting services for the mother and her child until the child’s second birthday.

NFP Goals

  • To improve pregnancy outcomes by helping women engage in good preventive health practices
  • To improve child health and development by helping parents provide responsible and competent care
  • To improve the economic self-sufficiency of families by helping parents develop a vision for their own future, plan future pregnancies, continue their education, and find work

Who is eligible?

The Nurse Family Partnership provides services to women with their first pregnancy and gestational age being less than 28 weeks.
This program enrolls statewide.
