NURSE HOME VISITING PROGRAMS & SERVICES

Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP)

is a statewide, evidence-based home visiting program that targets first-time, low-income, at-risk pregnant women who are no more than 28 weeks pregnant, and follows them through the child’s second birthday. Through hands-on, developmentally-appropriate education, support, and frequent contact, specially trained nurses help moms have healthy pregnancies and their children reach developmentally appropriate milestones.

Healthy Families Delaware (HFD)

uses nurses and social workers as home visitors to provide expectant and new mothers statewide opportunities to get the education and support they need until their child turns three. This evidence-based program serves first time and subsequent pregnancy moms who are more than 28-weeks pregnant or have a newborn younger than three months.

Delaware HOPE (DE HOPE)

an expansion of Healthy Families Delaware, also uses nurses and social workers as home visitors to provide expectant and new mothers the education and support they need until their child turns three. Additionally, it uses peer recovery coaches to support the mother through addiction recovery and healing. This evidence-based program serves first time and subsequent pregnancy moms who are more than 28-weeks pregnant or have a newborn younger than three months.
