Nurse-Family Partnership

Our services are available during the COVID-19 outbreak. Learn more.

The Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is an evidence-based program that partners first-time moms with nurse home visitors.

Women enrolled in the program are visited by a specially trained, registered nurse throughout the pregnancy, until the baby turns two years old. During these visits, a nurse will offer knowledge and support to confidently create a better life for women and their babies.

Program Goals:

  • Support women to have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby
  • Improve the economic self-sufficiency of the family by helping parents develop a vision for their own future, plan subsequent pregnancies, continue their education, and develop job skills
  • To enroll in the program, a woman must:
    • Be pregnant with her first child, 28 weeks or less
    • Meet income and residency requirements

This program is supported through a combination of state and federal funding from the New Jersey Department of Children and Families.
