National Nurse-Led Care Consortium
The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium operates Philadelphia Nurse-Family Partnership and Mabel Morris Family Home Visit Program in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Philadelphia Nurse-Family Partnership provides pregnant and parenting families public health nursing services through an intensive home visitation model. This model has been shown to produce a number of important outcomes, including improved prenatal health, increased maternal employment, and decreased involvement with the juvenile and adult criminal justice systems. Nurses, working closely with families through home visits, identify health-harming legal needs and connect families with HELP: MLP attorneys who provide invaluable assistance that reduces maternal and family stress and leads to greater health outcomes for both parents and children.
