The California Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) maternal-child health community nursing program began serving families in 1996. NFP now is available to 5,200 first-time expectant mothers, both adolescents and young adults, in 21 counties with support from various federal, state and local sources. But significant need remains, as NFP is estimated to reach just one-fifth of eligible moms and babies in the state.
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.
