Philadelphia Nurse-Family Partnership

The Philadelphia Nurse-Family Partnership is still accepting referrals at this time. Please contact us for more information. Due to the COVID-19 Pandemic our nurse home visitors are utilizing telehealth to care for our families. 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.
