Our mission is to empower first-time mothers living in poverty to successfully change their lives and the lives of their children through evidence-based, nurse home visiting.
The NFP home-visiting program pairs a registered nurse with a low-income, first-time mom to help her have a healthy pregnancy and full-term delivery. NFP nurses also coach new moms on strong parenting skills and child development, and they help families set goals to achieve economic self-sufficiency. More than 30 years of research from randomized, controlled trials has shown many positive outcomes from the Nurse-Family Partnership program, including reduced child abuse and neglect, decreased juvenile crime, and improved school readiness. The nonprofit, national NFP organization works to bring this proven program to more vulnerable families and communities and ensure program quality and positive results. Independent research shows that for every dollar invested in NFP, a community can realize up to $5 in return.
