NFP
NFP (Nurse-Family Partnership)- For first Time Moms, who are 28 weeks or
less. There is an eligibility requirement.

The Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is a community health program that pairs registered nurses with first-time, low-income mothers during their pregnancy and continues through the child’s second birthday. The program aims to improve pregnancy outcomes, child health and development, and the economic self-sufficiency of the family.

Nurses provide home visits to offer guidance, support, and education on topics such as prenatal care, infant care, parenting skills, and achieving personal and family goals. The program’s focus is on empowering mothers to make positive choices for themselves and their children, leading to healthier pregnancies, better child development, and improved family well-being.
