From Upstate to Downstate, Nurse-Family Partnership is serving low-income, first-time parents.
Young women pregnant with their first child are paired with a Nurse-Family Partnership registered nurse who is trained to educate, encourage and support them through the first two years of motherhood. This approach has proven to produce positive outcomes for the entire family.
Why does it work? By empowering women to become the mothers and role models they want to be, Nurse-Family Partnership helps children get on a healthy path to success.
Nurse-Family Partnership in Illinois
Nurse-Family Partnership was launched as an Illinois charity in 2000 in Kane County, after the state began exploring evidence-based home visitation programs. Today, agencies are serving clients in DuPage, Jefferson, Kane, Lake and Marion Counties.
