?

GuideStar worked with BoardSource, the national leader in nonprofit board leadership and governance, to create this section, which enables organizations and donors to transparently share information about essential board leadership practices.

Board Orientation & Education ?
Why does this matter? Without clarity around their responsibilities and expectations, board members are not positioned to succeed. They may find themselves challenged to fulfill their governance responsibilities or frustrated by the expectations that the organization has set for them. BoardSource recommends that every new board member participate in a formal orientation process, and that all board members sign a pledge or agreement committing to their board service and to all of the responsibilities and expectations that come with service. Ideally, board members also should participate in a formal governance training program prior to serving on a board.

Does the board conduct a formal orientation for new board members and require all board members to sign a written agreement regarding their roles, responsibilities, and expectations?
Response Not Provided
CEO Oversight ?
Why does this matter? Oversight and management of the chief executive is one of the board’s most important legal responsibilities. The CEO or executive director is the board's single employee, and - just like any other employer/employee relationship - regular and written assessment is critical to ensuring that the chief executive and board are communicating openly about goals and performance. BoardSource recommends that boards conduct formal, written reviews of their chief executives on an annual basis, which should include an in-person discussion with the chief executive and distribution of the written evaluation to the full board.

Has the board conducted a formal, written assessment of the chief executive within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Ethics & Transparency ?
Why does this matter? A commitment to handling conflicts of interests is essential to creating an organizational culture of transparency. Boards should create and follow a policy for identifying and handling conflicts of interest, whether real or perceived. BoardSource recommends that organizations review the conflict-of-interest statement and require signed disclosures from all board members and senior staff on an annual basis.

Have the board and senior staff reviewed the conflict-of-interest policy and completed and signed disclosure statements within the past year?
Response Not Provided
Board Composition ?
Why does this matter? The best boards are composed of individuals who bring a variety of skills, perspectives, backgrounds, and resources to tackle the complex and strategic challenges confronting their organizations. BoardSource recommends that boards commit to diversity and inclusion by establishing written policies and practices, which include strategic and intentional recruitment of diverse board members, continual commitment to inclusivity, and equal access to board leadership opportunities.

Does the board ensure an inclusive board member recruitment process that results in diversity of thought and leadership?
Response Not Provided
Board Performance ?
Why does this matter? Boards need to regularly assess their own performance. Doing so ensures that they are being intentional about how they govern their organization, which is a critical component of effective board leadership. BoardSource recommends that a board conduct a self-assessment of its performance a minimum of once every three years to ensure that it is staying on track with its roles and responsibilities.

Has the board conducted a formal, written self-assessment of its performance within the past three years?

Programs

Program: Nurse-Family Partnership (GuideStar Exchange,
The GuideStar Exchange allows nonprofits to regularly update key information directly to GuideStar. It provides richer and broader information about their programs, impact, finances, people and more.
March 2014)

Budget:
$13,725,672
Category:
Public, Society Benefit
Population Served:
Infants/Babies (under age 5)
Poor/Economically Disadvantaged, Indigent, General
Females, all ages or age unspecified

Program Description:

Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) focuses on 1st time mothers; during a 1st pregnancy the best chance exists to promote & teach positive health & development behaviors between a mother & her baby. Registered nurses deliver NFP fostering a powerful bond between nurse & mother. An NFP client begins with her nurse home visitor during her first trimester & continues through the child’s 2nd birthday. This intervention during pregnancy allows for any critical behavioral changes needed to improve the health of the mother & child. The NFP National Office provides intensive education for nurse home visitors who utilize Visit Guidelines, clinical consultation & intervention resources to translate NFP’s theoretical foundations & content into practice in an adaptable way to each family. NFP agencies enter data from visits into a Clinical Information System. This data is monitored to ensure the program is being implemented with fidelity to the research model, so comparable results are achieved.

Program Long-Term Success:

48% reduction in child abuse and neglect 56% reduction in emergency room visits for accidents and poisonings 59% reduction in arrests at child age 15 67% reduction in behavioral and intellectual problems at child age six 72% fewer convictions of mothers at child age 15

Program Short-Term Success:

1. Improve pregnancy outcomes by helping women engage in good preventive health practices, including thorough prenatal care from their healthcare providers, improving their diets, and reducing their use of cigarettes, alcohol and illegal substances. 2. Improve child health and development by helping parents provide responsible and competent care. 3. Improve the economic self-sufficiency of the family by helping parents develop a vision for their own future, plan future pregnancies, continue their education and find work.

Program Success Monitored by:

More than 30 years of research from randomized, controlled trials conducted in three diverse settings demonstrate that when first-time mothers receive the guidance and support they need, both mother and child benefit. Independent research makes clear that communities benefit socially and financially when they invest in NFP – a RAND study found that every dollar invested in Nurse-Family Partnership yielded more than five dollars in return. As more states and communities adopt the Nurse-Family Partnership model, the National Service Office works to ensure that they adhere to the same disciplined approach in order to achieve comparable outcomes.

Program Success Examples:

Nurses guide at-risk, first-time mothers through the emotional, social and physical challenges experienced in preparing for a healthy birth. The nurse continues to teach parenting, life and health skills to the mother once the child is born. This care and support continues through the child’s second birthday and fosters positive growth for the mother and child. The relationship between mother and nurse empowers the mother and is proven to foster effective parenting skills and increase the likelihood of ongoing positive decisions long after Nurse-Family Partnership ends. NFP can help break the cycle of poverty – empowered, confident mothers become skillful parents who are able to prepare their children for successful futures, and their children grow into healthy, productive citizens.

Impact Summary from the Nonprofit Additional Information
A Charting Impact Report consists of an organization’s responses to the five questions. Helping validate this self-reported data are three reviews. Once an organization has used the online interface to complete its report, its responses will produce a document with a unique URL that will be shared on this website, on your GuideStar profile, on the reports of charities participating in BBB Wise Giving Alliance evaluations, and – in the future – with other websites and information sources about nonprofits. We encourage organizations to use this URL to share their report on their own website and through their own media channels. Participants will receive guidance about promoting their Charting Impact Report, along with other benefits, once they publish their report.

Nurse-Family Partnership is an evidence-based community health program that empowers first-time mothers living in poverty to successfully change their lives and the lives of their children through nurse home visiting. Each mother we serve is partnered with a registered nurse early in her pregnancy and receives ongoing nurse home visits that continue through her child’s second birthday. Independent research proves the value that communities receive from this relationship – in 2005, the Rand Corporation calculated that every dollar invested in the program returned up to $5.70, and in 2011 the Washington State Institute for Public Policy estimated the program produces a long-term net return of more than $20,000 per family served. A cornerstone of Nurse-Family Partnership is the extensive research on the model conducted over the last three decades. Randomized, controlled trials were conducted with three diverse populations beginning in Elmira, New York, in 1977; in Memphis, Tennessee, in 1988; and in Denver, Colorado, in 1994. All three trials targeted first-time, low-income mothers. Follow-up research continues today, studying the long-term outcomes for mothers and children in these three trials. The level of proven effectiveness demonstrated is unsurpassed in evidence-based home visitation programs. The program effects that have the strongest evidentiary foundations are those that have been found in at least two of the three trials and are listed below: •Improved prenatal health •Fewer childhood injuries •Fewer subsequent pregnancies •Increased intervals between births •Increased maternal employment •Improved school readiness In addition, important data from all home visits are continuously collected from Nurse-Family Partnership Implementing Agencies through the Nurse-Family Partnership National Service Office's web-based data collection system. These data are analyzed and returned to local Nurse-Family Partnership Implementing Agencies to provide them with information on their progress toward meeting Nurse-Family Partnership's implementation benchmarks in improving maternal and child health.

Expert Assessment

The Nurse-Family Partnership program consists of sending registered nurses to perform regular visits to low-income mothers, both during and immediately after pregnancy (up until the child’s second birthday), in order to counsel them on issues such as birth spacing and child nutrition. Repeated studies have shown lasting differences between those who did and didn’t participate in the program, even when participants were chosen by lottery. Read More »
Rating = Top-Tier. The Nurse-Family Partnership is a nurse home visitation program for first-time mothers – mostly low-income and unmarried – during their pregnancy and child’s infancy. The program has been evaluated in three well-conducted randomized controlled trials, each carried out in a different population and setting. All three trials found a pattern of sizable, sustained effects on important child and maternal outcomes. The specific types of effects differed across the three trials, possibly due to differences in the populations treated. Effects found in two or more trials include (i) 20-50% reductions in child abuse/neglect and injuries; (ii) 10-20% reductions in mothers’ subsequent births during their late teens and early twenties; (iii) improvement in cognitive/educational outcomes for children of mothers with low mental health/confidence/intelligence (e.g., 6 percentile point increase in grade 1-6 reading/math achievement).

Randomized controlled trials with three diverse populations showed consistent program effects that provide a stronger start for children who are at significant risk of negative school and life outcomes. Researcher and Faculty

Organizational Strengths

There are no summaries available for this organization.

They have been able to engage in high-quality long-term research using the strongest methodologies in order to demonstrate their impact. They also have a strong track record in engaging with community stakeholders to bring this effective model to a wide variety of populations Researcher and Faculty

Areas for Improvement

There are no summaries available for this organization.

While NFP has been demonstrated to be effective on a variety of indicators, questions remain regarding the specific path through which improvements are made: what components of the program are critical to achieve long-term positive outcomes, what populations are most/least likely to benefit from this intervention? Answering these types of questions could not only improve implementation of the program in various communities but could provide important information to other programs serving similar populations. Wide dissemination of this information could prove invaluable to increasing knowledge in the area of improving outcomes for first-time mothers and their children. Researcher and Faculty
