Nurse Family Partnership program: a resource for parenting non-minor dependents

Q:  I participated in JBF’s web seminar last week on the needs of parenting youth in foster care. There was information presented about the Nurse Family Partnership program, which the presenters said improves prenatal health and outcomes for mothers.  Where can I learn more about this program and find an agency in my county?

A: The Nurse Family Partnership is an evidence-based program that has demonstrated benefits for both the child and the mother. Given the high incidence of parenting youth in extended foster care, making timely referrals to the Nurse Family Partnership is an important resource for non-minor dependents who are pregnant. To learn more about the Nurse Family Partnership and to locate an implementing agency, follow this LINK.
