Nurse-Family Partnership is a non-profit organization operating in the United States which arranges for home visits from registered nurses to low-income first-time mothers. The visits begin during pregnancy and continue for two years following birth. NFP intervention has been associated with improvements in maternal health, child health and economic security.
Nurse-Family Partnership was launched as an Illinois charity in 2000 in Kane County, after the state began exploring evidence-based home visitation programs. Today, agencies have served more than 2000 families in the Champaign-Urbana and Savoy area as well as Jefferson, Kane and Marion Counties. Learn more >
