Beginning with trust, ending with extraordinary outcomes.

Nurse-Family Partnership® is a community health program that truly changes lives – for generations to come.


Nurse-Family Partnership helps transform the lives of vulnerable first-time moms and their babies. Through ongoing home visits from registered nurses, low-income, first-time moms receive the care and support they need to have a healthy pregnancy, provide responsible and competent care for their children, and become more economically self-sufficient. From pregnancy until the child turns two years old, Nurse-Family Partnership Nurse Home Visitors form a much-needed, trusting relationship with the first-time moms, instilling confidence and empowering them to achieve a better life for their children – and themselves.

An evidence-based community health program, Nurse-Family Partnership's outcomes include long-term family improvements in health, education, and economic self-sufficiency. By helping to break the cycle of poverty, we play an important role in helping to improve the lives of society's most vulnerable members, build stronger communities, and leave a positive impact on this and future generations.

The Nurse-Family Partnership National Service Office is a non-profit organization that provides implementing agencies with the specialized expertise and support needed to deliver Nurse-Family Partnership with fidelity to the model – so that each community can see comparable outcomes.
