MFHS Receives United Way Grant for Nurse-Family Partnership

1504444_877850258896949_557704958735329358_o Maternal and Family Health Services was recently awarded a grant to support our Nurse-Family Partnership program by the United Way of Wyoming Valley. This $30,000 grant will help support the NFP nurses in their work throughout Luzerne, Lackawanna, Wayne and Susquehanna counties.

The Nurse Family Partnership is a voluntary, free program giving first-time moms valuable knowledge and support throughout pregnancy and until their babies reach two years of age. Partnering first-time moms with caring nurse home visitors empowers mothers to confidently create a better life for their children and themselves.

Thank you to the United Way for supporting MFHS!
