Nurse Family Partnership

Public Health nurses provide home visits that improve the health, well-being and self-sufficiency of low-income, first-time parents and their children in El Paso and Teller counties. Home visits begin with women during pregnancy and continue until their child is 2 years old.

  • NFP is free to all women who are eligible for Medicaid and WIC and meet other income requirements.
  • Our program is based on a national program that has produced measurable positive results.
