Nine out of 10 women in the Texas Nurse-Family Partnership program have delivered their first baby full-term and at a healthy weight. These results and others show that this proven program is helping vulnerable Texas families get off to a good start.

In 2006, The Dallas Foundation and TexProtects were instrumental in bringing the first Nurse-Family Partnership to Texas at the YWCA of Metropolitan Dallas. In 2007, the Texas legislature established a statewide grant program that has resulted in Nurse-Family Partnership programs in 28 counties.

 

Over 40 years of evidence show the measurable, long-lasting difference Nurse-Family Partnership makes in the lives of moms and their children. Meet NFP moms and nurses in our video.
