Committed to helping fAMILIES succeed

Formed in the fall of 2004, the National Service Office for Nurse-Family Partnership and Child First Board of Directors provides governance, stewardship, and leadership to help the organization accomplish its vision of transforming lives through the power of relationships. We are honored to have a dedicated group of professionals, who volunteer their time and expertise in the pursuit of helping families succeed.

Ensuring success for network partners, AFFILIATES and communities

The Denver, Colorado-based National Service Office is comprised of a diverse and knowledgeable team of nursing and nurse education, public policy, program development, marketing, program quality assurance, administration, legal and information technology professionals, as well as vital support staff in finance and human resources.

The National Service Office staff collaborates with Denver-based Invest in Kids and other partners nationwide to develop new local agencies and to provide continuing support to existing agencies. In addition to direct service to Nurse-Family Partnership and Child First, the National Service Office staff works to educate policy makers, clinicians and the public about the impact Nurse-Family Partnership and Child First have on family health and on government expenditures.
