Population(s) Served

Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) is a national evidence-based, community health program that helps transform the lives of vulnerable mothers pregnant with their first child. WiNGS is the first to provide Nurse-Family Partnership program in Texas and continues to be the largest provider in North Texas serving hundreds of women and babies a year. Nurses in the Nurse-Family Partnership program support first-time moms for pregnancy through the first two years of motherhood, advocating for them and making sure they get the resources needed for mom and baby.
In 2020, WiNGS served 421 moms and 255 babies through the Nurse-Family Partnership program. Each mom and baby benefit from an average of 60 appointments over two years with NFP nurses providing health, nutrition, social/emotional wellness support/resources/opportunities. Of the 150 moms enrolled, 120 received prenatal care in their first trimester. Of the 116 moms who gave birth, 91% initiated breastfeeding. Of the 116 births, only six babies were born pre-term and only five were born at a low birth weight.
The Nurse Family Partnership works to keep moms and babies happy and healthy while connecting them to resources needed for a successful future.
