Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP), a nationwide initiative that is new to Waco, is a rigorously tested community healthcare program with astounding, multi-generational outcomes. NFP empowers low-income, first-time mothers to become confident parents and strong women by partnering these women with nurse home visits early in the pregnancy through the child’s second birthday, providing support, resource connections, education and counseling on health, behavioral and self-sufficiency issues. Proven benefits include improved prenatal health, fewer subsequent pregnancies, increased maternal employment, improved child school readiness, reduced criminal involvement, and less child abuse, neglect and injuries.
