Nurses for Newborns exists to provide a safety net for families most at-risk to help prevent infant mortality, child abuse and neglect through in-home visits that provide healthcare, education and positive parenting skills.
Hundreds of babies in our community suffer from health problems, neglect and malnutrition that can be prevented. That prevention is the purpose of Nurses for Newborns Foundation. Every year since 1991, the foundation has sent registered nurses into the homes of high-risk, low-income families to assess the health of these newborns and provide care. The nurses also provide parent education and help with other needs, including those of single mothers who may be isolated and desperate for help in caring for their babies.
