In 2012, the first Nurse-Family Partnership site was established in Alaska at SouthCentral Foundation to serve Alaska Native and American Indian families in the greater Anchorage area. Providence Health & Services was to follow in offering NFP soon after in 2013. Nurse-Family Partnership has been helping Alaskan families achieve healthier pregnancies and births, stronger child development and a path toward economic self-sufficiency.
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.
