Nurse-Family Partnership® helps to break the cycle of poverty by empowering first-time mothers to successfully change their lives and the lives of their children through a proven-effective nurse-led program. This program allows nurses to deliver the support first-time moms need to have a healthy pregnancy, become knowledgeable and responsible parents, and provide their babies with the best possible start in life. Every dollar invested can return up to $5.70. Plus, birth outcomes are improved, children are more prepared to start school, child abuse is prevented, and communities save money. The unique bond between mother and nurse provides the foundation for strong families, and lives are forever changed – for the better.
