Nurse-Family Partnership

Nurse-Family Partnership's 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 goals of the Nurse-Family Partnership program are: 1.

Empowering Young Moms Can Change Lives

“I am constantly moved by families’ coping with hardship that would break most of us, and with the nurses’ passionate dedication and competence in supporting families,” wrote program founder, Dr. David Olds, now a professor of pediatrics, psychiatry and preventive medicine at University of Colorado, in an email.

This quote is from a great article by Fiona J. Kirk in The Daily (New York, NY) about how Nurse-Family Partnership helps to improve the lives of the families we serve.  The Nurse-Family Partnership now serves more than 23,000 families in 32 states. The median age of a participating mom is 19; only 51 percent have a high school degree and 88 percent are unmarried. The families’ median household income is $13,500. Because the nurses make home visits, they can offer in-depth emotional, physical and moral support to young women who might never have had a mentor.

Thank you for supporting Nurse-Family Partnership and helping impact the lives of so many!

You Make a Difference

After posting our call for help during the Mother's Day season, five new donors stepped up and gave $195 to assist low-income women who are pregnant for the first time.  Their generosity will enable Nurse-Family Partnership to help serving vulnerable women and their kids and improve pregnancy outcomes, child health and development and economic self-sufficiency.  Thank you!

Improve Lives of 650,000 Low-Income Moms

Thanks to your donations of $7,232 of our goal of $90,000, Nurse-Familiy Partnership is expanding its services from 32 to as many as 40 states within the coming months.  Nurse-Family Partnership currently serves more than 22,000 families.  We expect to know exactly where and how many more vulnerable women and their kids will be served in the next few months.  Your donations, coupled with federal funds from the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, have made it possible for the states to expand home visitation programs like ours.  In the meantime, we have installed a new online program, Efforts to Outcome, which will enable us to better serve the nurse home visitors who call on our clients.  Thank you!
