NURSE FAMILY PARTNERSHIP

Build a thriving future for you and your baby while your pregnant with your first child!

COVID-19 UPDATE - Nurse Family Partnership is accepting new enrollment and will continue services via Video Conference and/or Telehealth. We will assist you with technology and connection as needed and available. 

Becoming a parent for the first time can be overwhelming. You probably have a lot of questions. Nurse Family Partnership is a no-cost home visiting program for qualifying first time moms who are 28 weeks pregnant or less.

 

Your personal nurse will provide support, answer your questions, and most importantly be there when you need them most through your pregnancy and until your baby is two years old. Enroll today to create a better future for you and your baby!

OUR PROGRAM

We match you with a personal nurse who will visit your home throughout your pregnancy, all the way up until your child's second birthday. Your nurse will talk with you about pregnancy, parenting, your child’s health and development, and whatever else is on your mind. Our goal is to help you have a healthy pregnancy, healthy birth, a healthy baby and plan for your ongoing success and self-sufficiency!
