Fighting Childhood Poverty

Your support of Nurse-Family Partnership helps to fight childhood poverty in the United States. Attached to this report is a great article about the struggles of one family in Utah and how they are supported by Nurse-Family Partnership. This is an example of one out of more than 23,000 Nurse-Family Partnership families across 42 states that are really trying to provide a good start in life to their baby.

Every year, more than 500,000 babies across the United States are born into low-income homes, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. Studies by the Department of Health and Human Services show that low-income children are more likely to suffer from physical abuse and neglect, have parents in conflict with the law, be exposed to toxic chemicals and experience hunger. They are also more likely to struggle in school, to repeat grades and have behavioral problems.

All of these stressors of being born into poverty are addressed by Nurse-Family Partnership and your generosity and advocacy of NFP helps make it possible to serve more and more of these families every year.
