Friends of New York City Nurse Family Partnership
- New York
Our mission is to improve the lives of babies and their mothers through enhancing the work of New York City Nurse-Family Partnership. NFP is the gold standard of early intervention home visiting programs. Nurses visit first-time low income mothers from pregnancy until their child is age 2 to assure a successful delivery, promote positive and nurturing parenting and move the mothers to self-sufficiency. Through the strong bond that is created between mother and nurse that allows change to occur, many adverse outcomes for babies are reduced by 50% or more: child abuse and neglect, mortality, accidents, behavioral problems and more.
