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. Twenty-one 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.
