First Steps

“When I was pregnant, I felt I didn’t have anybody to lean on. I was so lucky to have a nurse like her.”

 Shanice, 17-year-old first-time mom

Working towards GED

NFP Nurse Home Visitor Lisa met her client playing soccer, and enrolled her into the Nurse-Family Partnership program after her client dropped out of high school and became pregnant. Lisa helped the mother find a safe place to live and a full-time job. The mother is also plans to complete her GED now that she can pay for the test and transportation. The mother’s son is almost 2 years old and is a healthy, active, and inquisitive toddler. The child’s grandmother has also begun to spend time with the mother and her child again.
