Nurse-Family Partnership is a FREE nurse-led home visitation program, offered by the Johnson County Department of Health and Environment. First-time mothers are paired with a nurse home visitor.

What NFP moms have said:

“My nurse helped me organize my life and thoughts. I appreciate her standing by me through the difficult time of transition.” – Julianna M.

“I love this program. It made such an important, positive impact on my life. I will never forget my nurse or the wonderful things she did for me and my family.” – Anonymous

“I was 17 and pregnant with my first child. Because of their support and counseling, I sought prenatal care and learned about breastfeeding. I stayed in school. They gave me a chance to dream and taught me I didn't have to be a statistic. I graduated from college in the top ten of my nursing class with my BSN.” – Anonymous

“My nurses were experts at what they did. Any question I had, they had the answer or helped me find a solution.” – Shoustone
