Vetting Centers and Charities

What:

When a woman becomes pregnant before she’s prepared to take care of her child, the risk factors for the entire family escalate and often results in conflict and poverty. Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) intervenes by providing low-income, first-time parents with a consistent relationship that they can count on. A compassionate, trusted public health nurse visits the new mom from pregnancy until the baby turns 2-years old. NFP helps transform the lives of these vulnerable first-time mothers and their babies as the moms receive the support and care they need to have a healthy pregnancy and provide responsible and competent care for their children. NFP nurses form a strong, trusting relationship with the moms, providing encouragement and empowering them to become more economically self-sufficient.

 

Where:

Nurse-Family Partnership operates in the United States.

Why: 

This model of partnering experienced nurses with first-time moms has more than 37 years of research from controlled, randomized trials to prove its success. NFP improves overall pregnancy outcomes by educating women on preventative health practices while improving child development by teaching parents to provide the necessary care for their children. In addition to from the moms and their babies who benefit from the organization, NFP strengthens communities by improving the economic self-sufficiency of families through a process of helping parents develop a vision for their own futures, continuing education and finding jobs. The work of Nurse-Family Partnerships is aimed at creating a future where all children are healthy, families thrive together, communities prosper, and the cycle of poverty is ended.
