You Can Change a Baby’s Life

Our goal is to ensure ALL babies in our community get a great start in life. We do that by strengthening New York City Nurse-Family Partnership (NYC NFP), providing it with financial support that expands services and programming for new mothers and nurses.

 

NYC NFP operates the nationally renowned nurse home visiting model that empowers first-time, low-income mothers to become the best mothers they can be.

Support low-income, first-time mothers when it matters most.

The best way to break the cycle of poverty is to provide a strong supportive relationship beginning in pregnancy and continuing into the earliest years of a baby’s life. Under evidence-based Nurse-Family Partnership, nurses visit expectant moms and continue from pregnancy until the baby is two. The strong bond that develops gives new moms confidence and transforms babies’ lives.

NFP is a national model that has achieved these dramatic results:

%

reduction in child abuse and neglect

%

fewer language delays by 21 months

%

fewer injuries and poisonings

%

fewer behavioral and intellectual issues

Donors to Friends of New York City Nurse-Family Partnership assure that NYC NFP has resources that are essential for a strong program but not covered by core government funding.

What We Do
