Supporting Hands Nurse-Family Partnership is a community health program that works collaboratively with other providers and agencies to support first-time mothers and their families. The program partners mothers with registered nurses to provide the support moms need to have a healthy pregnancy, become knowledgeable and responsible parents, and provide their babies with the best possible start in life.

From pregnancy until the child turns 2 years old, nurse home visitors form a trusting relationship with the mom, creating the foundation for strong families and instilling confidence, empowering them to achieve a better life for their child and themselves.

Participation in the Nurse-Family Partnership program is voluntary and free to eligible women.
