Our Nurse-Family Partnership® (NFP) program is a free home-visiting service that serves first-time moms by providing valuable knowledge and support beginning early in pregnancy and until the child reaches two years of age. Partnering first-time mothers with a personal nurse who will provide services to the family based on their schedule empowers these mothers to confidently create a better life for their children and themselves.
Nearly 40 years of research has consistently proven that the Nurse-Family Partnership® program succeeds at its most important goals — keeping children healthy and safe, and improving the lives of moms and babies.
PHS’ Nurse-Family Partnership program serves families in North West Queens and Rockaway as well as throughout Staten Island.
