Nurse-Family Partnership has a strong, sustained presence in Pennsylvania, thanks to bipartisan legislative support and strong local champions.
The first three NFP sites in Pennsylvania were started in 1999 through the Pennsylvania Commission on Crime and Delinquency. By 2001, Governor Tom Ridge and the Department of Public Welfare worked together to fund 20 more sites. Today, the Keystone State’s Nurse-Family Partnership serves as a Pennsylvania charity to vulnerable families in 44 counties, thanks to strong bipartisan legislative support for funding this proven program.
