Nurse-Family Partnership

Nurse-Family Partnership is a free, voluntary program that partners first-time moms with nurse home visitors. When you enroll in the program, a specially trained nurse will visit you throughout your pregnancy and until your baby turns two years old. During these visits, your caring nurse will offer the knowledge and support you need to confidently create a better life for your baby and yourself.

We hope for these long-term outcomes:

  • Babies are born healthy
  • Children are nurtured by their parents/caregivers
  • Children are physically and mentally healthy and ready for school
  • Children and families are safe
  • Families are connected to formal and informal supports in their community
