Nurse-Family Partnership is a program for women who are having their first baby. If you enroll, a registered nurse will visit you in your home throughout your pregnancy and continue to visit until your baby is two years old. Nurse-Family Partnership encourages fathers, family members and even friends to be involved in the visits and learn how to best support you.
The Healthy Start Coalition of Hillsborough County, Inc. and REACHUP, Inc. provides the Nurse- Family Partnership (NFP) home visiting program that is evidence-based and voluntary serving families in East Tampa, Sulphur Springs and Tampa Heights.
The NFP nurse will help you:
Have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby.
Become a better parent.
Build a strong network of support for you and your baby.
Make your home a safe place for your baby to live and play.
Get referrals for healthcare, childcare, job training, and other support services available in your community.
