Children First - Nurse Family Partnership (NFP)
Children First (NFP) provides support to first-time mothers and their families. A Registered Nurse (R.N.) will arrange a visit time and location (usually in the home) to meet with you on a regular basis until your baby is 2 years old. Your nurse will support you by providing regular assessments of you and your baby to include personal health, safety, strong parent child relationships, child development and learning, work/school/life goals, and connect you to resources in the community to achieve success in these areas.
