Through this free program, eligible parents are connected to a registered nurse who provides the support, advice and information needed to have a healthy pregnancy and be great parents!


Nurse-Family Partnership®(NFP) is a home visiting program for eligible pregnant parents. As a voluntary NFP participant, you’ll be matched with a registered nurse who will provide ongoing support, advice, and information during pregnancy and until your child reaches age 2.

  • Have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby
  • Navigate personal health and wellness
  • Understand and gain confidence regarding their baby’s needs and development
  • Create a safe home for baby to grow and thrive
  • Build a strong support network
  • Set and achieve family goals
  • Get referrals and resources to community support services such as DSHS, WIC, and healthcare providers

General guidance is to meet every two weeks. You also get to decide who participates—you can include your partner, mom, or best friend.
