In Tennessee, the necessity of programs such as Nurse-Family Partnership is great, as the state ranks in the lowest quartile for overall child health. Infant mortality, low birth weight and poverty rates are all high.

Today, Nurse-Family Partnership serves vulnerable young families in Shelby County. Public and private funding and support enables these Tennessee charitable services.

Nurse-Family Partnership in Tennessee

Nurse-Family Partnership nurse home visitors work with low-income 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 community health program that has been documented to achieve lasting and significant effects through multiple, well-designed randomized, controlled trials — including one trial conducted in Memphis. More than 37 years of research proves that it works.
