The Nurse-Family Partnership is a voluntary program where specially trained nurses visit vulnerable women in their homes during their first pregnancy and throughout the first two years of their children's lives to accomplish three goals:
Improve pregnancy outcomes by helping women improve their health-related behaviors, including reducing use of cigarettes, alcohol and illegal drugs.
Improve child health and development by helping parents provide more responsible and competent care for their children.
Improve families' economic self-sufficiency by helping parents develop a vision for their own future, plan future pregnancies, continue their education and find work.
