Philadelphia Nurse-Family Partnership

The Philadelphia Nurse-Family Partnership is still accepting referrals at this time. Please contact us for more information. Our nurse home visitors are currently visiting families virtually and in-person based on the client's preference and current CDC and City of Philadelphia Covid-19 guidelines. Our referral form is linked below.


The Philadelphia Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) has been serving low-income first-time mothers in Philadelphia since 2001, and has been recognized by the NFP National Service Office and Commonwealth of Pennsylvania for exemplary performance.

Nurse-Family Partnership is a national, evidence-based community health program. The program’s outcomes include long-term family improvements in health, education, and economic self-sufficiency. By helping to break the cycle of poverty, the Nurse-Family Partnership plays an important role in helping to improve the lives of society’s most vulnerable members, build stronger communities, and leave a positive impact on this and future generations.

In May 2020, NNCC created the Family Emergency Fund to provide critical financial support to families in the form of low-barrier, rapid response grants.

The goals of the Family Emergency Fund are to:

  • Ensure safe and healthy housing
  • Maintain family stability and ensure children's safety
  • Support education and health care access

"The best part is having an amazing nurse who loves and cares for my child the way I do. And having a program that provides so much for my child to help with her early learning and development." - Emergency Fund Recipient
