    Nurse-Family Partnership is often cited as THE intervention for preventing child abuse and neglect. From a healthy babies program to crime prevention, Nurse-Family Partnership is validated by research. The level of proven effectiveness demonstrated is unsurpassed in evidence-based home visitation programs. Over the last three decades, there has been a 48% reduction in child abuse and neglect among participants in Nurse-Family Partnership.
