About

The Nurturing Families Network (NFN) is a statewide support program for first-time parents that provides a system of continuous care designed to promote positive parenting. The NFN program at Family Centers is offered to all new parents giving birth at Greenwich and Stamford hospitals. After completing their training, volunteers contact parents by phone and offer support, educational materials, group events and referral information to other community services. Information to parents may include topics such as newborn feeding, childcare, stress management, immunizations, and other critical information about the health and care of their new baby. Volunteers will be supervised by the program coordinator.

Hours are flexible for this opportunity and volunteers may work out of our Stamford location (60 Palmer's Hill Road) or one of our Greenwich locations (40 Arch Street or 22 Bridge Street). In addition to the training a personal interview and background check is required. Spanish speaking volunteers are encouraged to apply.
