  • Have a healthy pregnancy and a healthy baby;
  • Become a better parent;
  • Build a strong network of support for me and my baby;
  • Make my home a safe place for my baby to live and play;
  • Obtain referrals for healthcare, childcare, job training and other support services available in my community;
  • Find ways to continue my education and develop job skills; and,
  • Set goals for my family’s future and find ways to help me reach them.


Who can enroll in the program?

Any woman who:

  • Is pregnant with her first child;
  • Meets income requirements; and,
  • Lives in Missoula County.

You are encouraged to enroll as early as possible in your pregnancy. Go to the national Nurse-Family Partnership for more information on this program.
