Changing lives through community
healthcare nursing.

Maternal and child health nurses are the backbone of Nurse-Family Partnership. A nurse-led maternal health and home visitation program, Nurse-Family Partnership partners low-income, first-time moms with maternal and child health nurses. The resulting trusted relationship gives these moms the support they need to have a healthy pregnancy, improve their child’s health and development, and become more economically self-sufficient.



Providing help during pregnancy for
first-time moms.

A voluntary, free maternal and childhood health program, Nurse-Family Partnership gives first-time moms valuable knowledge and support throughout pregnancy and until their babies reach two years of age. Partnering first-time moms with caring nurse home visitors empowers these mothers to confidently create a better life for their children and themselves.



Strengthening society with an evidence-based community healthcare program.

Nurse-Family Partnership is a community healthcare program that yields quantifiable social benefits and a substantial return on the community’s investment. More than 37 years of evidence from randomized, controlled trials prove this maternal health program’s effectiveness guiding low-income, first-time moms and their children to successful futures. By developing strong family foundations, this program establishes better, safer, and stronger communities for generations to come.


Making a long-term difference by supporting a top-rated charity.

With a proven record of effective outcomes, Nurse-Family Partnership has earned the reputation of one of the country’s top-rated charities. Not only does this maternal and child health program change the lives of low-income, first-time moms and their children, but it also strengthens communities by helping to break the cycle of poverty.



Achieving the benefits of evidence-based public policy.

Nurse-Family Partnership is a model nurse home visitation program for evidence-based public health policy. With more than 37 years of evidence of effectiveness, Nurse-Family Partnership services have shown to help break the cycle of poverty, strengthen communities, and improve lives.


Validating the Nurse-Family Partnership model.

Through extensive research conducted over more than 37 years, Nurse-Family Partnership has a proven level of effectiveness. Three randomized, controlled trials demonstrate that Nurse-Family Partnership delivers against its goals of better pregnancy outcomes, improved child health and development, and increased economic self-sufficiency. These outcomes contribute to preventing child abuse, reducing juvenile crime, and increasing school readiness.


Celebrating the positive impacts of a top-rated charity.

As an evidence-based community healthcare program, Nurse-Family Partnership provides low-income, first-time moms with the care and support they need to have a healthy pregnancy, provide competent care for their children, and achieve a better life for themselves and their families.
