What have and haven't they accomplished so far?

Nurse-Family Partnership's program goals are:
1. Improve pregnancy outcomes by helping women engage in good preventive health practices, including thorough prenatal care form 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 resulting in an increase in school readiness; and
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.

Nurse-Family Partnership National Service Office's goals are to continue to serve more and more families with the highest program quality possibly and provide our nurses and agencies with world class customer service.

Nurse-Family Partnership's program goals are ongoing and every visit a nurse makes to a new mom is work towards those goals. Program outcomes are tracked locally and nationally to ensure quality implementation of NFP.
Nurse-Family Partnership National Service Office's goals of growth, quality and delivering world class customer service will be realized through the following work:
• Work with other evidence-based home visiting programs to get the Maternal Infant Early Childhood Home Visiting program which is federal funding stream to states reauthorized.
• Evaluate options for increasing the scale of our program in certain geographic areas in order to show a direct impact on a community when Nurse-Family Partnership is implemented at scale.
• Continuous quality improvement work will focus on implementation efficiency issues in order serve more families and custom plans will be worked on as needed to strengthen program outcomes.
• Our customer service to NFP agencies is being greatly strengthened through ongoing work to establish an on-demand, customizable report portal for all NFP agencies.

Nurse-Family Partnership has the highest level of evidence that it is an effective program through three randomized controlled trials and strong outcomes from those trials:
• Improved prenatal health
• Fewer childhood injuries
• Fewer subsequent pregnancies
• Increased intervals between births
• Increased maternal employment
• Improved school readiness

Nurse-Family Partnership has a network of more than 230 agencies across the country implementing the NFP program and each of these agencies is connected with their communities.

The data from every visit a nurse makes to a family is recorded in Nurse-Family Partnership's national data system allowing for local reports that can truly help an agency recognize their strengths and areas where they can improve.
Nurse-Family Partnership works with other early childhood home visiting programs for federal funding and advocacy.

All of our goals and objectives roll-up into one primary purpose and that is to be able to serve more families across the country and always with quality and fidelity to our program model. We know we are making progress when our numbers of families being served at any given time increases (currently at 32,000 families) and when our quality indicators remain strong and/or improve.

We would like to begin to serve a larger percentage of the eligible population of NFP families within individual communities and states, so that with a larger footprint we will be able to show real impact in each of our communities. We will measure this by the percentage of NFP eligible families we are able to serve in certain communities where we are able to really increase our presence.

Nurse-Family Partnership has grown to serve families in 43 states. We have begun to serve Native American/Tribal families in the last few years and we are are constantly evaluating ways we can improve our program for the families we are serving. We have helped bring federal funding to states for Nurse-Family Partnership and other evidence-based home visiting programs.

With all of our work and progress toward serving more families, we would like to serve even more; to have increased and meaningful levels of participation within communities being served by Nurse-Family Partnership and showing how we can truley help break the cycle of poverty and positively impact the health and development of babies and their families.
