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.
