November 7, 2014 / SCO News

SCO celebrated the 27 newest graduates of the NYC Nurse-Family Partnership program in a graduation ceremony November 5th. Congratulations to the families, nurses and staff! See photos below.

Nurse-Family Partnership is a nationally recognized, evidence-based program for first-time mothers. Registered nurses provide in-home visits for expectant mothers during the early stages of pregnancy through the child’s second birthday, offering the counseling and support needed to deliver healthy babies and become good parents.

Our program is made possible by generous support from:

Child Welfare Fund
Healthy Start Brooklyn
NYC Dept. of Health and Mental Hygiene
New York State Dept. of Health
The Price Family Foundation
The Robin Hood Foundation
Tiger Foundation

We inspire

8,200

children and teens through academic, after-school, summer and work readiness programs

85%

of children with complex behavioral health needs discharged from SCO's Bridges to Health program are successfully living at home and in the community, averting the need for more restrictive institutional care
