The Salt Lake Valley Health Department has provided maternal child health and home-based services to low-income families for more than 40 years — and today, it administers the Nurse-Family Partnership program.
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 Utah 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.
