Nurse-Family Partnership of Colorado
Colorado has been a leader in evidence-based home visitation. The state was one of the earliest implementers of Nurse-Family Partnership, beginning in 2000, and has served over 16,000 mothers to date.
NFP Nurse Home Visitors deliver this evidence-based program to families in 59 of Colorado’s 64 counties. Nineteen individual agencies operate NFP sites. These agencies consist of public health departments, community health centers, community nursing agencies, and hospital systems.
In Colorado, Nurse-Family Partnership is managed by a four-part team, including the Colorado Department of Human Services; National Center for Children, Families & Communities, College of Nursing, University of Colorado Denver; the NFP National Service Office; and Invest in Kids.
Nurse-Family Partnership in Colorado
Nurse-Family Partnership is a rare Colorado charity
health program that has been documented to achieve lasting significant effects through multiple, well-designed randomized, controlled trials. More than 35 years of research
proves that it works. This evidence shows our clients — low-income, first-time mothers — that if they follow the program and work with their nurse, they can transform their lives and the lives of their children.
