October 20, 2020
“Arizona nonprofit group Hands of Hope connected Haro with Casa de los Niños and the Nurse-Family Partnership, which operates in 40 states and has served 330,000 families since 1996.

MINNPOST: Nurse-Family Partnership stands with Minnesota moms to fight COVID, racism, poverty

“Across the United States where NFP operates, more than 317,000 families have been served. Randomized control trials have found that the program reduces child abuse and neglect cases by 48 percent and cuts emergency room visits for accidents and poisonings by 56 percent. The presence of fathers in the household is increased by 46 percent in Nurse-Family Partnership families.
NFP benefits all of us by addressing homelessness, injustice, inequity and the myriad impacts of poverty, discrimination and lack of opportunity. It is supported through private donations and public funding, and every dollar spent on NFP saves a remarkable $5.70 for high-risk families.”
