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.
Supporting first-time mothers when it matters most
Since 2015, Friends of NYC NFP has launched programs that help moms find family-sustaining careers, encourage friendship, and build community.
Participants in our program are part of New York City, Nurse-Family Partnership. NYC NFP operates the nationally renowned nurse home visiting model that helps moms succeed by getting the care and support they need. Nurses help moms have a healthy pregnancy and support moms with advice on child development and steps to ensure a stable income for their new family.
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 moms in the NYC NFP Program have resources essential to achieve financial security, peace of mind, and realize their heart’s desire for themselves and their children.
