The array of disadvantages so many kids face from the moment they come into the world are mind-boggling.  Some half million children are born in the U.S. each year to first-time mothers who lack the resources to care for them adequately.

For these mothers, fortunately Nurse Family Partnership is there to help.  This nonprofit with locations across the U.S. works to improve the health, well-being, and self-sufficiency of both them and their children.  The program provides education and support that continues throughout the child’s first two years of life.

Research shows this approach works, not just in improving babies’ health outcomes in the short run but in helping to ensure that these kids grow up to become productive citizens.
