Nurse Family Partnership (PMCHNNJ)
Nurse-Family Partnership is an evidence-based community healthcare program that empowers low-income, first-time mothers to become confident parents and strong women by partnering them with nurse home visitors (video & tele health visits during the COVID-19 restrictions). This trusted relationship instills a level of confidence in the first-time moms that will help them guide them and their children to successful futures.
Nurse-Family Partnership has more than 37 years of evidence from randomized, controlled trials that prove the effectiveness of this community healthcare program. An investment in Nurse-Family Partnership yields not only quantifiable social benefits, like improved prenatal health, improved child health and development, and increased economic self-sufficiency, but also a substantial return on the community's investment in the program. Independent research proves that for every public health dollar invested in a local Nurse-Family Partnership program, communities can realize more than five dollars in return due to savings in social services, healthcare, and criminal justice costs.
By joining forces with Nurse-Family Partnership, communities change the lives of their most vulnerable citizens, and thereby create a better, safer, and stronger community not just for today, but for generations to come.
