Mission Statement

The mission of Friends of New York City Nurse-Family Partnership is to improve the lives of mothers and babies by supporting the New York City Nurse-Family Partnership program (NYC NFP) through financial assistance to enable mothers’ self-sufficiency, increase social and community connections, and provide professional development for nurses. Our vision is a world where NFP moms have the resources they need to create a brighter future for themselves and their children.

Description

As a volunteer you can help us create impactful and rewarding programs that encourage community, bolster moms’ confidence, and help parents develop skills. Volunteers also help contribute to a mom’s well-being, ultimately resulting in healthy families and healthy babies! At Friends, we believe we can improve the world for mothers and children, helping two generations at a time. We do that by strengthening New York City Nurse-Family Partnership (NYC NFP), through financial support that expands services and programming for new mothers and nurses. The NYC NFP operates the nationally acclaimed nurse home visiting model across the 5 boroughs that empowers first-time mothers to become the best mothers they can be. The core program is supported by government grants, but additional resources are needed. We work side by side with the NYC NFP staff to bring extra assistance to moms in their program.

The Learn, Eat, and Play (LEAP) program connects NYC NFP moms with one another to learn, socialize, let their babies play, and engage in interesting talks focused on maternal and child wellbeing. Virtual LEAP sessions are regularly offered biweekly and are led or co-led by Friends staff, community members, or consultants. In 2023, we plan to reintroduce in-person programming. Our most popular sessions are: baby sign language, prenatal yoga, sound healing/minority mental health, mommy & me 30 minute meals.
