I repeatedly hear from recipient families and professional advocates that Nurse Family Partnership (NFP) leads the way in supporting parent/child stability, health and safety. Thank you NFP; keep up the great work. I will continue to support your efforts for years to come.
I love supporting an organization with evidence to show fantastic outcomes and make such dramatic changes in mothers lives! Very excited to read the new book "A Path Appears" that discusses the work of Nurse-Family Partnership!
The most evidence based program in the country. NFP has a clear focus on healthy babies, and proven success helping families transition off of entitlement programs, and tfurthering heir education and employment! We all want programs with proven results, NFP actually has them!
I first met the nurses of Nurse-Family Partnership when they volunteered to speak with the parents attending the Family Place program at the Easton Area Public Library in Pennsylvania. I loved that they sat right down on the floor and were willing to chat with the parents of babies and toddlers about any topic that came up. As I learned about their program, I was even more impressed. As a children's librarian, I received training in the stages of infant brain development and came to understand that the very first months and years of a child's life are critical in the connection of neurons for learning and social skills. I believe that the intervention provided by Nurse-Family Partnership has the best chance to break the cycle of failure and poverty of all of the many social and medical programs available. I donate as much as I am able every year. These nurses are my heroes.
Nurse-Family Partnership saves the young mother by teaching her how to mother. It saves the child because now the child can be nurtured and saves the future child of that child because the cycle is broken. Study after study shows that getting in there when the child is young will change the course of that child's life. Essentially giving them a life.
My donations go to organizations who have proven to improve the quality of life of those they serve and lower government spending. This is exactly what Nurse-Family Partnership does in America.
We were looking for charities to support that had proven success and constantly evaluated their work to ensure effective help for families. NFP was it for us.
As a director of a private foundation, the fact that Nurse-Family Partnership is an "evidence based" organization is a huge factor in making grant decisions. Furthermore, because NFP addresses a core problem which gives rise to so many other societal issues, any grant gets great leverage. I would encourage any foundation to consider NFP as a grant recipient, if its program falls within the scope of the foundation's guidelines
I learned about Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP)in 2004 when I was working at a public health non-profit that provides maternal and child health services. Intrigued, I read up on everything I could find about NFP, and was struck by the caring, compassion, intelligence, and fierce drive for real, meaningful results that shine through in every aspect of the work. The holistic focus on helping children together with their parents makes sense to me intuitively--as does the focus on preventive early intervention, the earlier the better. But I was also impressed to find that NFP has 30+ years of proven successful results under its belt, carefully documented with randomized controlled trials, as well as Rand cost-benefit research showing multiple dollars saved for every dollar spent on the program.
