Volunteers get hands dirty to benefit Missoula-area preschools
The Missoula City-County Health Department has been delivering a home visiting program called Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) for our first time moms in Missoula County since September 2012. These first time moms are visited by their own nurse from pregnancy until the baby is 2 years old. We will be having our first graduate from the program next month. It’s been a great experience here in Missoula for both the moms and nurses. It has been fun to watch all of our enrolled families grow. During a recent client survey our clients have said that their nurse helps them feel good about becoming/being a mother, helps them find ways to reach their goals, recognize their successes and helps with the health of their baby. The nurses focus on our mom’s “heart’s desire”, or rather, their “mom” goals and works with them to take the supportive steps together.
