The first Nurse-Family Partnership local agency in the U.S. began serving clients in Ohio, in 1996. Since then, thousands of women and their children in the Buckeye State have benefitted from this proven nurse home visitation program.

Nurse-Family Partnership nurse home visitors work with low-income young women who are pregnant with their first child, helping these vulnerable young clients achieve healthier pregnancies and births, stronger child development, and a path toward economic self-sufficiency. Nurse-Family Partnership is a rare Ohio charitablecommunity health program that has been documented to achieve lasting and significant effects through multiple, well-designed randomized, controlled trials. More than 37 years of research proves that it works.

Nurse-Family Partnership in Ohio

Dayton was one of the very first communities to implement Nurse-Family Partnership, back in 1996. That is when the U.S. Department of Justice asked Dr. David Olds, the NFP program founder, for permission to start Nurse-Family Partnership in the community as part of the federal Weed and Seed program.

Today, Nurse-Family Partnership serves families in Cuyahoga, Franklin, and  Montgomery Counties, as part of the Help Me Grow system.
