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!
