The goal of the Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) Program (NFP) is to assist first-time parents in succeeding, while learning new skills.
Families develop confidence and proficiency with parenting and economic self-sufficiency by working with a nurse home visitor from this proven program. This relationship with the nurse will span up to a 2-1/2 year period, beginning in pregnancy.
The Nurse-Family Partnership has three clear objectives:
- Fostering healthier pregnancies
- Improving the health and development of children
- Encouraging family self-sufficiency
NFP also serves single fathers if enrolled within the first month post-partum.
NFP is affiliated with the national Nurse-Family Partnership.
