Nurse Family Partnership

Nurse-Family Partnership is a maternal child health home visiting program that fosters long term success for first time mothers and their babies. First time mothers who are Medicaid eligible meet with specially trained nurses during their pregnancy and until their child’s second birthday. The nurses support moms to have healthy pregnancies, healthy babies, and to become knowledgeable, nurturing, and responsible parents. 

Jefferson County Public Health partners with Kitsap Public Health and the Port Gamble S'Klallam Tribe to offer Nurse-Family Partnership to Jefferson and Kitsap County Families.
