Part of our ongoing series this month to support local charities is our focus on Nurse-Family Partnership. Nicole is joined by Michelle Warner from Nurse-Family Partnership in Colorado. Their home visiting program has been greatly affected by COVID-19. They have moved to 100% telehealth. Many of their clients don't have cellphone access. They have lost all access to their nurse at the most critical time in their lives - when they are preparing to have a baby. It's such an isolating time, but without a partner, alone, pregnant it's even more isolating. Anything we can do to help them is appreciated.
Verizon is donating up to 3800 phones across the country. Nationally N-FP has committed $500,000 to minutes to help these moms stay connected to have access to the social support they need. This was completely unbudgeted since it was so unexpected. They are turning to people to make donations to contribute to this cause.

About Nurse-Family Partnership:
BEGINNING WITH TRUST, ENDING WITH EXTRAORDINARY OUTCOMES.
NURSE-FAMILY PARTNERSHIP® IS A COMMUNITY HEALTH PROGRAM THAT TRULY CHANGES LIVES – FOR GENERATIONS TO COME.
Nurse-Family Partnership empowers first-time moms to transform their lives and create better futures for themselves and their babies.
Over more than four decades, research consistently has proven that Nurse-Family Partnership succeeds at its most important goals: keeping children healthy and safe and improving the lives of moms and babies.
Nurse-Family Partnership works by having specially trained nurses regularly visit young, first-time moms-to-be, starting early in the pregnancy, and continuing through the child’s second birthday.
