Partner Spotlight: Nurse-Family Partnership

Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP), a program of Le Bonheur, is an evidence-based home visitation program for first-time pregnant mothers who are living in poverty. Specially trained nurses visit at-risk moms in their homes throughout their first pregnancy and the first two years of their child’s life. The program aims to improve pregnancy outcomes by helping women engage in preventive health practices, improve child health and development, and improve families’ economic self-sufficiency by helping parents develop a vision for their future. Since 2010 more than 600 mothers and their newborns have completed the program. Slingshot is honored to work alongside Nurse-Family Partnership.
