David Olds, M.D., Professor of Pediatrics, Psychiatry, and Preventive Medicine at the University of Colorado, developed the Nurse-Family Partnership (NFP) program more than 20 years ago. It is a highly-acclaimed, evidence-based early childhood intervention program using the nurse home-visitation model.
Evidence from randomized, controlled trials proves that it is effective and yields consistently good outcomes for parents and their children. Evaluation results indicate that the nurse home visitation model yields savings to the community four times greater than program costs.
The program has been replicated in more than 200 sites nationwide. Sacramento County Public Health is implementing the NFP model in Sacramento County. The NFP Program accepts referrals from all zip codes in Sacramento County.
