With an unwavering commitment to serve more families with comprehensive services, meet their unique needs and create transformation change across generations, two of the leading evidence-based home visiting models—Nurse-Family Partnership and Child First—have united. Together, our unified organization will have a greater reach and offer a more holistic continuum of care for families and children experiencing the effects of poverty and adversity.

The December 2020 merger resulted in the creation of the National Service Office for Nurse-Family Partnership and Child First (NSO), which serves as a central operational engine for these two pioneering home visitation programs. The NSO will work to ensure that healthcare, early childhood development, and the mental health of the entire family are served in proven ways to achieve long-term positive outcomes.

“The National Service Office has been incredibly supportive, consistent and comprehensive - side by side with Mary’s Center since beginning our conversations about an NFP program in Washington, D.C. nearly 20 years ago. We have benefitted from the specialized teams at the NSO which supports all aspects of implementation and sustainability. The National Service Office has truly been a partner in bringing NFP to D.C., investing in our success and present for guidance and leadership as we begin and grow.”

– Abby Goldstein, Nurse Supervisor, Mary’s Center NFP

Philanthropic partnerships are the backbone of the National Service Office’s ability to support a national network of local NFP and Child First programs. Contributions to the NSO yield positive long-term health, mental wellness and self-sufficiency outcomes for tens of thousands of families in communities across the country.
