Nurse-Family Partnership

2020-2022 Core Award - $237,000.00

St. Louis County's Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is an evidence-based nurse home visiting program that supports new mothers and their children. NFP's strategy is to partner specially trained registered nurses with families who are becoming parents for the first time, starting early in pregnancy (before 29 weeks gestational age) and continuing visits until the child's second birthday. NFP services target the prevention of child abuse and neglect, the improvement of pregnancy outcomes, the economic self-sufficiency of the family, and healthy child development.
