Buncombe County mothers graduate from local public health program

From the press release:

WHAT: After more than two years of hard work to provide a better life for their children, a group of mothers will graduate from the Buncombe County Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) program on July 10. NFP is a voluntary, evidence-based program that pairs registered nurses with low-income, first-time mothers. Through regular in-home meetings, they work to improve maternal health, promote healthy child development and help mothers continue school or find work. Home visits start early in pregnancy and continue until the child’s second birthday.

Program staff, graduating mothers and their families, community members and current program participants will attend the event honoring the graduates. Buncombe County NFP is implemented by the Buncombe County Health Department and enrolled its first mother in 2009.
