Nurse Family Partnership (NFP) Program

WHAT IS NFP?
This program is for women who are having their first baby, are low income and are less than 28 weeks pregnant. A nurse visits each family every week or two, during pregnancy and until the baby is 2 years old.


The Nurse-Family Partnership can assist women to:

  • Have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby
  • Become a better parent
  • Build a strong support network
  • Make a safe home for their baby to live and play
  • Get referrals for healthcare, childcare, job training and other services in the community
  • Find ways to continue their education and develop job skills
  • Set goals for their family's future and find ways to help reach them


PROGRAM OBJECTIVES/GOALS:
The goals of the program are to help first-time parents succeed and to:

  • Improve pregnancy outcomes – healthier babies and healthier moms
  • Improve child health and development – support and education for new parents
  • Improve the economic self-sufficiency of the family – setting and reaching goals for the future
