We provide support to first-time moms living in New York City who meet income requirements which qualify them for free services through NFP. Some clients are challenged with unstable housing, homelessness, and other complex living situations increasing their need for consistent nurse support.

Despite these challenges, NFP surveys reveal that 70% of participants want to pursue higher education or certification programs at some point. 

Backed by our growing donor base, Friends creates opportunities for first-time moms and their families to thrive

“You opened the doors that they had hoped for but had not been able to act on due to financial barriers. Perhaps even more powerful, however, has been Heart’s Desire’s role in acknowledging the efforts of these women and serving as a vote of confidence in them as individuals. For many of my clients this act of support and investment in their future goes much further than any dollar amount and has not been shown to them in many areas of their lives.”
