Keeping Infants Safe

2020-2022 Core Award - $999,000.00

Nurses for Newborns (NFN) provides nurse home visitation for women, caregivers, and infants in order to prevent infant mortality, child abuse, and neglect. NFN's program targets first-time mothers, pregnant women, and mothers who may have previously given birth. NFN augments registered nurse visits with visits by licensed social workers and community health workers to promote the physical and mental health of infants and caregivers facing complex medical, social, economic, or environmental risks.
